Summertime means warm weather, nice days at the beach, and women in dresses. A Marin County man is in jail today after he allegedly used his sandal to film up women's skirts and dresses at a farmers' market in Fairfax.

New outlets are reporting that 26-year-old Nicholas Springer of San Rafael tucked a video camera into his Croc sandal and headed to the downtown market on Wednesday afternoon. The manager of the market saw him walk around and place his foot underneath various women's dresses, between their legs.

He did this to 35 women -- maybe even more, according to news outlets.

The manager called police who found a small recording device the size of a credit card in Springer's sandal. Police reviewed footage and saw he had recorded women at the market, grocery store, and a nearby coffee shop, KTVU reports.

Fairfax Police Chief Chris Morin went as far as to say Springer was a pervert and that he "didn't want the man around town."

Springer has been charged with a misdemeanor; however, this could be upgraded to a felony, given the high number of victims.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
