MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Police say they’ve arrested a man who took photos up women’s skirts without their knowledge in downtown Madison.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain says the 40-year-old Madison man was arrested Thursday morning on a tentative charge of invasion of privacy. DeSpain says it’s possible that some of the photos were taken on the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s campus.

According to DeSpain, the case is being investigated by Madison and university police. Police say they started their investigation last month.

The Wisconsin State Journal (https://bit.ly/1MfXNe8 ) reports the suspect is a university employee. University spokesman Greg Bump says the school knows about the allegations and is “reviewing” the suspect’s employment status.

A bill that would make “upskirting” a stand-alone felony in Wisconsin stalled in a state Senate committee earlier this year.
