A vice president of the world's largest live entertainment, Live Nation, arrested for filming up women's skirts with a pen camera during his London commute.
Andrew Macrae, 43 and VP of finance and strategic initiatives at Live Nation Entertainment, was spotted by an off-duty Met officer using the pen camera device, which he placed between the legs of a woman wearing a red dress on the train.
“The defendant seemed to be changing the angle of the bag, which he had placed between the legs of a blonde female wearing a red summer dress.”
After the incident, police search Macrae's home in Redhill to discover that Macrae had secretly filmed his female neighbor and house guest and had approximately 49,000 images of the ladies.
Andrew Macrae was married and worked at Live Nation since 2004. Since his initial actions were caught, Macrae has pleaded guilty to seven counts of voyeurism for the purpose of sexual gratification.
Since his arrest, Live Nation has dismissed Macrae and said “This matter is still before the courts and as such we are unable to comment on the case. We can confirm that these charges have been made against the individual personally and that he was terminated by Live Nation Entertainment in July 2017 following his arrest. Live Nation strongly condemns Macrae’s acts and is outraged by his offensive and criminal behavior which has no place at our company, city or the world at large.”
Macrae will be sentenced at Inner London crown on November 7th.
