Man arrested after allegedly taking photos of woman at tanning salon

The Badger Herald - 5 hours 6 min ago

A Madison man was arrested Thursday after he allegedly took photos of a woman while she was undressed in a tanning salon booth.

Madison Police arrested 28-year-old Benjamin J. H. Brossard after an investigation into the incident.

The incident occurred on Friday, Oct. 3 at a tanning salon in the 300 block of East Campus Mall, according to Madison Police spokesperson Joel DeSpain.

The 24-year-old victim told police someone had placed a cell phone under the wall separating two tanning booths and took pictures of her, DeSpain said.

The investigation led police to Brossard, who has been arrested for representations depicting nudity, DeSpain said.

The investigation is ongoing, and the tanning salon is cooperating fully with police, DeSpain said.
