MIAMI BEACH, FLA. -- Police in south Florida arrested a Georgia man this week on charges of illegally videotaping women who were changing out of their swimsuits during the Hooters International Swimsuit Pageant.
The episode took place over the weekend, according to a police report, which noted that it happened at the upscale Fontainebleau Miami Beach resort.
Arrest reports indicate that Ronald Keith Rolfes, 31, had stashed a camera in a swimsuit changing room, and was tape-recording models changing their suits.
Police said two officers who had been dispatched to the hotel on another matter were approached by a "frantic" swimsuit model, who said she had found the camera hidden in the changing area.
She told them that she saw the video camera in an unzipped backpack which had been placed under a chair.
The female officers checked the changing area and found the camera, which had recorded one model ... and had recorded Rolfes setting up the camera.
The cops say they found Rolfes sitting outside the changing station, and said he admitted to everything.
The police report said that Rolfes was at the competition as part of an entourage for another bikini company.
Officials confirmed that nobody with that company was aware of what Rolfes had done.
According to the arrest report, Rolfes told a male officer that he was secretly recording the models because he "never had a girlfriend."
The arrest and charges of video voyeurism have not improved his chances of getting a girlfriend anytime soon, if ever.
