MOORESVILLE, N.C. - Channel 9 uncovered allegations of hidden cameras and secret peeping inside a former NASCAR driver’s home.
Earlier this year, anchor Allison Latos found a lawsuit had been filed against Greg Biffle.
Biffle’s ex-wife and ex-mother-in-law are suing him and Roush Fenway Racing over hidden cameras inside Biffle’s estate on Lake Norman in Mooresville.
The lawsuit claims Ricky Reavis, a Roush employee, installed the hidden cameras for Biffle in bedrooms and bathrooms.
The lawsuit details visible cameras all over the outside of the home on Doolie Road, but that there were also hidden cameras inside the house, including in the master bedroom, bathroom and in the guest bedroom where Biffle’s former mother-in-law stayed.
Roush Fenway Racing has responded to the allegations, saying if Reavis was involved and used any of their equipment, they didn’t know and shouldn't be held liable.
Roush Fenway was dismissed as a defendant on Feb. 26, 2017. They argued that they can't be expected to monitor every single thing an employee downloads and they were unaware their computers were even being used to download these videos.
The lawsuit claims Biffle recorded his ex-wife and ex-mother-in-law on a digital video recorder and showed that video to other people.
The lawsuit says Biffle said under oath that the hidden cameras were installed for security because he believed his maids were stealing.
Biffle and his wife divorced in 2015.
Biffle raced in NASCAR for two decades before stepping down this year and moving into a TV analyst role.
This lawsuit raises serious questions over home surveillance and what's allowed in your own home.
Generally speaking, legal experts say you can have hidden cameras but not in a place where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy, such as a bedroom or bathroom.
