MADISON, Wisconsin — This plan really blew up on this guy.
A 32-year-old Wisconsin man walked into a police station in Madison and offered to turn himself in after a shoe camera he attempted to use to shoot upskirt videos blew up and injured his foot.
Cops say the man admitted to buying the camera to surreptitiously shoot up women’s skirts.
But the camera’s battery exploded before he was able to use it, injuring his foot.
The man received treatment for minor burns to his foot and later admitted his guilt to a clergyman, who advised him to turn himself in.
The man contacted authorities Tuesday afternoon, but because no illicit video had actually been shot, he was simply given a stern lecture and then released. Cops are, however, continuing to investigate.
In 2015, Wisconsin passed a law making it illegal for anyone to use a device to view or record under someone’s clothing without their consent.
