First it was MSNBC’s Mark Halperin. Then “The Today Show’s” Matt Lauer. Now, the recent string scandals involving creepy men who happen to work for NBC News has hit the peacock network’s business channel.
CNBC Director Dan Switzen has been arrested for allegedly spying on his teenage babysitter with a nanny camera placed in a tissue box in a bathroom of his Westchester, NY home.
The New York Daily News reports on the complaint filed by Pleasntville police which details how the teen discovered the camera and reported it immediately to authorities:
On Nov. 13, his 18-year-old live-in nanny invited two of her friends, also 18, over to the house and one of them discovered the camera in the bathroom, sources said.
The horrified teens took the camera to Pleasantville police about 7:50 p.m. that night and cops found incriminating images on its memory card.
Cops secured a search warrant, then arrested Switzen on a felony count of unlawful surveillance.
Switzen knows his way around cameras. He began his career as a technical director at MSNBC before eventually landing a director gig at CNBC.
According to his LinkedIn profile (since deleted) Switzen worked on “Power Lunch” and “The Suze Orman Show.”
He’s a very decent family man,” Switzen’s attorney, Jeffrey Chartier, told the Daily News. i”We will defend him accordingly.”
