Rams Head Tavern Owner Allegedly Filmed Women in the Bathroom
Howard County Maryland police have arrested and charged Kyle Muehlhauser, the owner of Rams Head Tavern, with six counts of “visual surveillance with prurient intent.” In layman’s terms, Mr. Muehlhauser has been charged with six counts of illegally filming women in the bathroom of his Savage Mills restaurant location.
Privacy Violated at Rams Head Tavern
In spring of 2014, a woman went into the bathroom of the Rams Head Tavern in Savage, Maryland. There, a digital camera fell onto the floor next her. She reported the incident to the police, who began investigating in May of 2014.
After reviewing the footage from the fallen camera, police concluded that six different women were recorded without their consent. Also on the tape was footage of the man, allegedly Mr. Muehlhauser, placing the camera in the bathroom. The camera was tested for DNA in December of 2014. The DNA on the camera matched that of Kyle Muehlhauser. According to The Baltimore Sun, the police also discovered and seized additional evidence after searching Mr. Muehlhauser’s home.
The Rams Head Group has locations in Savage, Annapolis, Crownsville, and Queen Anne’s County, as well as three concert venues in Baltimore.
Kyle Muehlhauser’s next court date is April 9, 2015.
This man’s actions are a reprehensible violation of women’s privacy. Additionally, the nature of the video makes it difficult to determine the identity of the victims.
