Special agent accused of taking pics in UW bathroom no longer with ATF

MADISON, Wis. - A special agent accused of taking photos in a University of Wisconsin-Madison bathroom is no longer with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the federal agency said Wednesday. 

Justin T. Fahy, 27, of Monona, is accused of slipping his phone under a restroom stall and taking  pictures of a woman Friday around 2:45 p.m., according to a news release issued Wednesday by UW police. 

On Tuesday, ATF spokeswoman Ashlee Sherrill confirmed Fahy was employed with the agency. In a statement Wednesday morning, Sherrill said he is no longer employed there. 

UWPD said Fahy told officers that the incident was a misunderstanding and he went into the wrong bathroom.

Fahy is facing tentative charges of attempting to take photos depicting nudity and disorderly conduct, police said.

Fahy has also been formally banned from the UW campus, according to the release.
