A Manassas man has been accused of rigging a video camera inside a bathroom to secretly videotape people during a Super Bowl party.

Prince William County police responded Monday to a report of an unlawful filming incident at a house party on the 7700 block of Beckham Court in Manassas.

A female partygoer found a video camera inside the bathroom while the device was recording, and the incident was reported the following morning, said spokesman Officer John Perok.

He did not know the age of the female.

Police said detectives determined that the homeowner, Philip A. Caplinger, 46, hid the camera and was using it to secretly videotape people at the party.

Caplinger was charged with unlawful videotaping of another.

He was released without having to post bail.
