Thursday, 55-year-old Dennis L. Brown was arrested outside Woodcreek Athletic Club in Tyler.
Brown is suspected of taking improper pictures of women at that location and outside Robert E. Lee High School.
This prompted us to look further into what the laws are when it comes taking photos of people without their consent.
Attorney Bill Rosenstein says it's not illegal to take pictures of other people in public, unless they are taken with the intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person.
Brown admitted to police that the pictures were for his own "sexual gratification."
Brown was being held in the Smith County Jail on $5,000 bond, but was released Friday.
