In an exclusive interview, the man suspected of taking upskirt photos at a Cypress H-E-B store tells his side of the story.

ABC13 was the only station in the courtroom when Smith made his first appearance and again when he entered a downtown courtroom around 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Smith was allegedly caught on camera taking pictures under the skirt of a young woman from Austria. She said she is working as an au pair.

Police say the surveillance video shows Smith following the woman around the H-E-B while she was grocery shopping. They claim when she bent over to get some eggs he slipped his phone under her skirt and took a photo.
