A 28-year-old Davenport man is charged with sliding his cellphone under the door of a tanning bedroom to video record a woman undressing as she prepared to tan nude, court records state.
Justin Scott Coffey is charged with invasion of privacy/nudity, which is a serious misdemeanor. He had his initial appearance Tuesday in Scott County District Court, Davenport.
The incident occurred at 5:15 p.m. May 9 at Bayside Tan, 171 E. 46th St., Davenport. Coffey was another customer at the salon.
When he tried to record the woman undressing, she screamed, alerting a manager in the salon, according to Coffey's arrest affidavit.
