The Mad Hatter Arrested

I saw this story in the news the other day, and it didn't even register with me who this guy was. He's the former owner of The Mad Hatter, a hat shop formerly located in downtown Lexington before being forced out by the Centrepointe project.

(WHAS11) - A Lexington businessman was arrested Friday for allegedly breaking into homes near the University of Kentucky and shooting video and pictures of women. According to Lexington Police, 55-year-old Terry Grossman was chased off from one of the homes by a woman, who then called the police. Grossman is charged with multiple counts of video voyeurism and stalking and is being held on $72,000 bond.

According to police, Grossman was also carrying marijuana, heroin and other prescription pills.

The Kentucky Kernel is reporting:

A UK student and female resident of the home on Crescent Avenue called Lexington Police Friday around 4:30 p.m. after getting out of the shower to find an unknown subject looking into her roommate’s bedroom, said Lt. Richard Bottoms.

Bottoms said the woman told the subject to leave and after police searched the area they found the suspect nearby. Bottoms did not know how the suspect entered the house.

Grossman has pleaded not guilty. His next court date is set for Dec. 29th at 8:30 a.m.
