Eric Ralph Watson, 34, of 201 Old Grove Lane in Apex, was charged Friday with one count of secret peeping.
Police said a man looking into a bathroom window was spotted by a neighbor last Thursday. The witness alerted police and the neighbors, and a man matching the description of the peeper was arrested the next morning as he approached the house.
Watson was a reporter for NBC affiliate WNCN-TV in Raleigh. The station issued a statement Tuesday saying he was no longer employed there.
Watson has denied the allegations.
