UT Austin employee fired and arrested for hidden camera

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A former University of Texas women's track equipment manager has been accused of videotaping athletes in the locker room shower.

UT officials on Friday said that Rene Zamora was arrested and charged with improper photography or visual recording, a state jail felony.

Uvalde County jail officials say the 30-year-old was released Thursday on his own recognizance.

Zamora could not be reached for comment, and it was not known whether he had an attorney.

A track team member filed a complaint in September. UT police investigators said they seized a laptop computer and memory cards from Zamora's home that had images of two former and seven current female student-athletes.

Zamora resigned Sept. 10 and has been barred from future employment at the university.
