PALM HARBOR — Pinellas County sheriff's deputies on Monday arrested a man who they say took inappropriate photos of a woman at a Starbucks.

Justin Buck, 48, of Tampa admitted to deputies he sat across from the 21-year-old woman, who was wearing a skirt, and took three photos under the table, the Sheriff's Office said. They were too dark, he told investigators, so he turned the flash on and took two more.

Buck told deputies the woman was "visually attractive," the Sheriff's Office said. She was not identified.

An employee at the coffee shop noticed and called law enforcement.

Buck gave permission to deputies to search his phone and iPad. Investigators believe he has done the same thing before at other Starbucks locations.

He faces a video voyeurism charge.

  5. Poorly assembled 'Lego Ninjago Movie' waters down Lego movie franchise

    Movies

    Well, that didn't take long.

    After only three movies, the Lego franchise is already a shadow of its original self, less irreverent and go-for-broke bricky. The watering down of an ingenious formula comes with The Lego Ninjago Movie, the sort we expected all along from plastic construction toys.
