Police in Neptune Beach, Florida say they received a call from a local surf shop about some unusual activity outside their women's dressing rooms. Seems that every time a young lady went to go try on a swimsuit, a man would walk close to the door and push his foot under the opening at the bottom. While that was strange enough, several of the women noticed something odd about Jeffery Polizzi's shoe: it had a 2 inch hole in the tongue with a tiny camera pointing out of it . . . and it wasn't even Spy School Day at the mall! Not surprisingly, that got their attention and someone told the manager who contacted police.
When confronted by officers, Polizzi took off, but patrons noticed his car in the parking lot and officers just waited for him to come back. He was charged with video voyeurism. Officers seemed impressed with Polizzi's ingenuity with footwear, saying that, "He cut about a 2-inch hole to put a camera in. It is unusual. It's the only one that I know of around."
At right, the picture of a Real American Genius who's work will probably not be appreciated in his lifetime. (MSNBC)
