A North Carolina man was arrested after police in Myrtle Beach, S.C., accused him of using an iPad to film three girls and five young women as they showered on his yacht.

William Richard Hilliard Jr., 49, of Cherryville, was arrested on Monday on a voyeurism charge, Myrtle Beach Jail records show.

A police report said three girls, three 18-year-olds, a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old woman were filmed on the yacht at 8211 Marina Parkway, reported WPDE, the ABC-TV affiliate in Conway, S.C.
