Manager at Doc's arrested for voyeurism after allegedly video recording employees in bathroom with smart phone

A manager at Doc's Marina Grill was arrested this week for voyeurism after he allegedly hid a smart phone inside a bathroom at the restaurant and recorded employees who used the uni-sex restroom.

Scott Anthony Fuchs, 47, was taken into custody by a Bainbridge Island police officer on Wednesday, Sept. 25 after a forensic analysis of his smart phone was complete.

Fuchs was charged with a felony count of voyeurism in Kitsap County District Court on Thursday, Sept. 26. He is being held in the Kitsap County Jail and bail has been set at $100,000.

On Aug. 1, police were notified by an employee of Doc's Marina Grill that a hidden video camera had been found in a black plastic bag between the trash can and the toilet bowl of the restaurant's restroom for employees.

The employee told officers he discovered a cell phone on video record mode as he was using the toilet.

When the employee noticed the camera, he played back the last recording. The footage clearly showed the manager and bartender of the restaurant concealing the phone in the bathroom trash can then flush the toilet, wash his hands and leave. Later, the employee entered the restroom, took off his work apron, unbuckled his pants and unzipped the front zipper. His undergarments were exposed just before he saw the hidden phone.

In court documents, police said Fuchs is a felon with a prior arrest for voyeurism in 2007.
