A man was arrested after deputies said he used his mobile phone to record a woman in a restroom, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.
Bryan Lara, 18, has been charged with one count of video voyeurism.
Deputies responded Sunday to Beverly's Restaurant after receiving a report of a man recording women using the restroom.
A 35-year-old woman at the restaurant told deputies she was using the restroom when she spotted a mobile phone facing her above the restroom's wall divider. According to investigators, the women's and men's restrooms have separate entrances but share a common wall.
The woman said Lara exited the men's side shortly after she left the restroom. The woman's boyfriend confronted Lara who admitted to recording her, deputies said.
Lara allowed deputies to search his phone and told them there were similar video on it.
According to deputies, Lara is an employee at the restaurant.
Deputies believe there may be other women who were recorded.

In almost 100 pages of confidential case files, multiple instances indicate a system that failed Belliveau. (Spectrum News image)
New documents released indicate the child was exposed to gangs, drugs and guns during his short life.
In almost 100 pages of confidential case files, multiple instances indicate a system that failed Belliveau.
The problems started just weeks after Belliveau's birth.
According to documents, Jordan was taken from his parents in November 2016 and placed in foster care based on a report that read:
"The home is filthy, disgusting ..."
"The home was shot up 3 times in the past."
"There is concern that Jordan Jr. is exposed to firearms and drugs."
And that young adults visiting the home were "... gang members and felons with firearms."
During an unsupervised visit with his mother on June 18, 2017, a confidential document said Charisse Stinson was holding then 1-year-old Jordan, when she "walked in to the middle of a fight" at a Burger King restaurant.
Jordan was injured in the fight.
In the same report, investigators note a dirty home and drug sales and that Jordan's parents were both known to be dangerous people.
During the next year, law enforcement records showed a history of domestic abuse between Jordan's parents. Some instances showed Stinson being the aggressor. Other times, Jordan's father was accused of battery on Stinson.
The instances have left questions about how Jordan could be allowed to go back to his parents — especially considering that Jordan's foster parents were willing to adopt him.
On Wednesday, Sam and Juliet Warren made a public statement, sharing memories of Jordan.
From January 2017 until May 31, 2018 they cared for Jordan. While in their home, he learned to walk and talk.
They wanted Jordan to stay in their family, but a court order forced them to give him back to his mother.
"We hope that Jordan’s loss will lead to the change that is needed to protect other endangered children in the system," said Sam Warren. "Jordan was failed by the system. He was failed by many people."

Police did say Jordan's mother and father are cooperating with the investigation and leads keep coming in.
"To anyone out there who knows where Jordan is, if anyone has Jordan, please take him to any safe place," said the boy's grandmother, Jessica Belliveau. "Safe places, any fire station, any library or any police station. We just want Jordan back safe."
Crews are currently focusing their search efforts in the area of Lake and East Bay Drive, the last location the mother reported seeing Jordan. The search for Jordan may expand to a shoulder-to-shoulder walk through the area as early as Tuesday, police said.

DAVENPORT, Fla. -- A Davenport couple has been arrested in the death of the woman's 2-year-old son, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Office. Shannon Short, 26, and her boyfriend Christian Thompson, 26, are accused of abusing and neglecting Short's son Harley Hiatt, Jr.
According to the sheriff's office, the abuse started about two months ago and would occur while Harley was in the care of Thompson. The first incident occurred sometime in May after the couple moved in together when Short texted Thompson, telling him to "mess" Harley up after the child broke a plate. Judd said during a news conference Thompson started to recorded the injuries and would send images via text message to Short, "so that it wouldn't look like they were beating him."
One video the sheriff's office obtained shows Harley "trembling" with fear, Sheriff Judd described during the press conference. Other photos show Harley with bruises and scratches on his face and patches of hair missing from his head. Sheriff Judd described times when Harley would cling to his mother as she got ready for work because he was frightened of Thompson. Sheriff Judd said Short neglected to care for her child's injuries by seeking medical attention, for in fear of being reported to Child Protection Services. According to the affidavit, Short eventually called 911 on July 31 once her son became unresponsive.
The child was transported to Heart of Florida Hospital where it was determined he had a brain bleed and died a few hours later. According to the affidavit, Harley suffered other injuries including blunt force trauma and a mutilated penis. Short has been charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child, negligent child abuse with great bodily harm, child abuse, failure to report child abuse, possession of marijuana, and possession of paraphernalia.
Thompson has been charged with first degree murder, aggravated manslaughter of a child, aggravated child abuse, negligent child abuse, possession of marijuana, and possession of paraphernalia.
The child would have turned 3-years-old in October, officials said.
"When you hear what this precious baby boy was put through, it's sickening. His mother knew about the abuse, allowed it, and continued to leave him in the care of his abuser. She and her boyfriend even joked about it. The whole thing is heartbreaking, and I don't think it's possible for me to be more disgusted by their actions," Sheriff Grady Judd said.
According to the sheriff's office, both Short and Thompson have a criminal history and both have other children that live with family members.
