Brooksville Save-A-Lot employee charged with video voyeurism

BROOKSVILLE — A Save-A-Lot supermarket employee was arrested Monday on accusations that he surreptitiously tried to record video of a woman under her dress with his cell phone.

David N. Botts, 22, of Brooksville faces two counts of video voyeurism in connection with an incident that occurred at the Save-A-Lot at 20040 Cortez Blvd., according to Brooksville Police.

On May 4, authorities say, a woman caught Botts kneeling down next to her with his cell phone activated. She believed he had photographed her underneath her dress.

Officers interviewed Botts, who admitted to trying to photograph the woman. He said he wasn't successful and later gave up his cell phone. No photos were discovered.

Over the next week, detectives searched the phone and recovered several deleted videos.

Authorities interviewed Botts on Monday and he admitted to recording the woman multiple times. He was being held Monday evening at the Hernando County Detention Center in lieu of $4,000 bail.
