DENVER - 9Wants to Know has learned a man is facing sex crime charges after he was caught secretly recording other men in the bathroom at the Denver Coliseum.

John Marks, 48, was arrested on Jan. 25 after an off-duty Denver police officer noticed him secretly using a cell phone to record other men at urinals, according to court documents obtained by 9Wants to Know.

On Wednesday, Marks was formally charged with invasion of privacy for sexual gratification.

A search warrant affidavit says Marks was recording with his cell phone as it hung from his waist while standing near the urinals. He told police he was recording because of a "dare."

"The suspect later stated that he was in financial dire straits and that he had been video recording for an unidentified party for money," documents say. "When the suspect asked if he was recording juveniles, he stated that he was only recording adults."
