A class action lawsuit has been filed against a Maryland restaurant owner after he was accused of secretly videotaping women in the bathroom.
Kyle Muehlhauser, 37, was arrested last week on six counts of visual surveillance with prurient intent. A woman reported last May she was inside a bathroom at the Rams Head Tavern in Savage when a digital camera fell onto the floor.
Detectives say footage on the camera showed a man placing the camera in the bathroom, and showed six different women who were secretly recorded.
According to court documents, an alleged victim has filed a class action lawsuit against Muehlhauser and Rams Head Tavern, claiming she visited the restaurant 12 times in the 30 days prior to the camera being discovered.
"[The victim] is appalled, disgusted, and angry that anyone would victimize women in this perverse
way, but believes that the antidote for such abuse is to confront the victimizers and hold them
accountable," according to a release from her attorney, Clarke F. Ahlers.
Court documents list punitive damages at $3 million.
