SAVAGE, MD (CelebrityAccess) — The president of the Rams Head Group, the company behind the Rams Head Tavern, Rams Head Live and the Silopanna Music Festival, has been charged with secretly videotaping women in the bathroom at Rams Head Tavern.
According to the Capital Gazette, Kyle Muehlhauser, 37, has been charged with six counts of visual surveillance with prurient intent. Muehlhauser reportedly turned himself in to police and has been released on a $35,000 bond. He faces a court appearance on April 9th.
Charging documents provided to the court say that police began investigating after a camera allegedly fell from the ceiling of the women's bathroom at the tavern. Police subsequently discovered footage on the camera that depicted at least six women captured on video while using the restroom.
“The toilet can be seen at the edge of the video frame,” Howard County Detective Dharam Bhatt wrote in the charging document. “Each of the victims can be seen approaching the toilet, removing their lower undergarments and sitting on the toilet.”
Bhatt wrote that Muehlhauser was identified as a suspect based on DNA evidence allegedly found on the camera.
