LA VERGNE, Tenn. - A man hired to fix a leaky shower was arrested for illegally videotaping his client in the nude. Jim Brennan was charged with Photographing Without Consent, a Class A Misdemeanor. 

"That's not just something that just happens. It takes plans," said La Vergne Police Chief Ted Boyd. 

Investigators said the 43-year-old Mt. Juliet man was called to the victim's house on Tuesday morning. While there, Brennan told the female victim she had to take a shower so he could find the leak. Before the victim entered the bathroom, Brennan set up a hidden video camera in the bathroom. 

"Just all sorts of red flags there that says to me that this probably is not the first time," said Boyd. 

Brennan also captured himself on video spending about 15 minutes setting the camera up to capture the victim near the shower. 

Police said after the victim took a shower she saw a blinking red light coming from the handyman's tool bag. 

"Curiosity takes over. She removes something that's over the bag to see what it is and low and behold it's a video camera," said Boyd. 

The woman called her husband and LaVergne police. Officers arrived to arrest Brennan before he could leave. 

Boyd said the suspect's actions suggest this is not the first time he has videotaped an unsuspecting client. Police are asking anyone who thinks they have been victimized by Brennan to call the authorities.
