A Lake Conroe bar says it has cameras in the men's restroom to dissuade vandalism and locals aren't too thrilled about being spied on while they do their business.
ABC 13 got a Wolfies employee on camera telling a customer that they have the cameras installed and staff told the station that if people don't want to be on camera, they shouldn't use their restroom.
Signs in a restaurant hallway warn of the cameras, which are aimed at the men's restroom sink.
Houston attorney Mark Thiessen says that Wolfies could be opening themselves to legal problems.
"What if a child uses that restroom? You open yourself up to many lawsuits. There could be public indecency and child pornography laws they are breaking," he said.
Thiessen adds that management should weigh their private interests against the legal trouble that could ensue over these cameras. What is the benefit of the cameras if they cause so much legal trouble? Not to mention loss of revenue.
"The cost of invading the privacy of customers probably outweighs the cost of protecting your establishment."
Management at the Lake Conroe location couldn't be reached for comment.
Wolfies has six locations in the Houston area, and one in College Station. The Conroe location is located right on the lake and customers can pull right to a nearby dock to visit the restaurant.
