Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

A part-time firefighter in Northfield has been charged with installing a video recording device in a shower at the fire station, officials said Tuesday.

Edward T. Panicko Jr., 59, of Arlington Heights, is charged with misdemeanor unauthorized video recording and obstruction of a police officer. They said Panicko unlawfully placed the video recording device in the shower to record another fire department employee showering without the victim’s consent. Authorities said the obstruction charge stems from an allegation that Panicko falsely told police during the investigation that he had destroyed the recording device.

Panicko resigned from the fire department earlier this month after allegations of misconduct were made by another firefighter,  and he turned himself in to authorities on Monday.

Panicko had been a part-time firefighter in Northfield for nine years and is also a retired Glenview firefighter.
