NEW ORLEANS - Police say a New Orleans taxi driver was arrested after allegedly using his cellphone to record video underneath a woman's skirt without her permission, then using the footage to try and bribe her.

The Times-Picayune reports Hervey Farrell, of Metairie, was arrested Monday and booked on charges of voyeurism and extortion for reportedly shooting lewd footage of a 32-year-old woman while she was a passenger in his cab in April 2012.

Court records state Farrell sent a copy of the video to the woman's attorney. The message was accompanied by a threat that if he received $1,000, the camera video footage would disappear.

It was unclear whether Farrell has an attorney.
