Shepherdsville man accused of recording video of men and boys in Chick-fil-A restroom
Police say 31-year-old Bryan C. Wilson "surreptitiously video recorded the urinal in the men's room for the purpose of capturing video of the genitalia of men and boys using this bathroom."
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Shepherdsville man has been arrested after police say he used his cell phone to record videos of men and boys using the bathroom at a Louisville Chick-fil-A.
According to LMPD, it happened on Jan. 9 between 4:30 and 9:30 p.m. at the Chick-fil-A restaurant on Westport Road, near Springhurst Boulevard.
An arrest warrant says Bryan Wilson, 31, "video recorded the urinal in the men's room for the purpose of capturing video of the genitalia of men and boys using this bathroom."
"During the recording time, the phone captured at least four male juveniles and one adult male urinating," according to the warrant.
“It was somewhat hidden. It was up on a cabinet that they use. It was propped up there, where the normal person probably wouldn’t see it,” said Sgt. Pat Bass with LMPD. “It’s disheartening to think that somebody would do that in a place that should be private.”
Sgt. Bass says a customer eventually noticed the phone and alerted employees, who turned the device over to LMPD. He says a search of the phone linked it to Wilson.
A warrant was issued for Wilson’s arrest and he turned himself in Monday, according to Sgt. Bass.
As of now, police say it does not appear that any of the videos on the phone were shared and there is no evidence that this was done anywhere else.
A background check of the 31-year-old shows no recent criminal activity in Jefferson or Bullitt counties.
Wilson’s grandmother tells WDRB that her grandson works at the Ford Plant on Westport Road, not far from Chick-Fil-A. She says this does not sound like the “good kid” she knows.
“It’s a sad world we live in,” said one Chick-Fil-A customer, Mike Anderson. “Have a conscience. Think about what you’re doing.”
“You just have to be more vigilant and I personally don’t let my kids go into the bathrooms by themselves,” said another customer, Stephanie Jahn.
Wilson is charged with five counts of video voyeurism. He was arraigned Monday, where he pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Wilson has since bonded out of jail. He is due back in court on Feb. 4.
