GRAND RAPIDS, Minn. - An Itasca County sheriff's deputy is accused of trying to videotape a teenage girl using the bathroom at his home.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension alleges 45-year-old Aaron Apitz, of Deer River, used his work cellphone to try to videotape the girl entering and exiting the shower. A criminal complaint says the girl found the phone and saw it was recording and reported the incident.
The Duluth News Tribune ( http://bit.ly/Zisb9M) says Apitz resigned Tuesday. He was charged with felony interference with privacy against a minor on Wednesday.
Apitz is not in custody. He could not be reached for comment because his phone number has not been published.
