    On Monday, the Grapevine Police Department arrested 64-year-old Andrew Crawford Boden at about 5 p.m. for improper photography or video recording. Boden was arrested in connection to the hidden camera found disguised as an electrical outlet in a Braum's restaurant restroom last week.

    An employee at the restaurant found the camera, which is a self-contained unit that looks like an electric outlet but is really a video recorder that can be purchased online or at retail stores in North Texas.
