John Puncel mug shot photoJohn Puncel worked for a year as the assistant women’s volleyball coach at Pasadena City College (CA) and likely used video to help his players improve their play. That’s NOT the kind of video he had on his cell phone while at the Glendale Galleria mall this week.

Cops noted suspicious activity as Puncel followed a young woman in a skirt up the escalator with cell phone in hand. By standing close to her and putting the cell phone very low, he was allegedly able to get what are called “upskirt” photos or videos that show a, uh, “unique” perspective on the female anatomy. Apparently some people are fans and got to great lengths to obtain the images.

When officers approached him, Puncel allegedly tried furiously to press buttons on his phone–possibly to delete photos or images–and ended up in a scuffle with police. Not only did they find an “upskirt video” showing the young woman’s legs and buttocks, but also a sexually explicit photo of an underage girl. He’s charged with secretly recording under the clothing of another person without consent, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest.
