Police: Taxi driver shoots lewd video of customer

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 extort her. 

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.
