A doctor with a criminal past was busted for taking video up the skirts of unsuspecting patrons at a Florida supermarket.
The store manager caught the spying creep in the act Thursday after a female customer alerted employees at the Publix Grocery Store in Groveland, just west of Orlando.
Dr. Akram Ismail, 57, was charged with video voyeurism once cops found several underhanded and overexposed clips stored on his cellphone, Groveland Police said.
"He holds his phone in his hand, and he's got like things on top of it, and then he acts like he's going to pick something up," the manager said in a 911 call, according to the Orlando Sentinel. "Then he bent down and did it and walked away."
Ismail, a gastroenterologist in Leesburg whose medical license was briefly suspended in 2012, began sweating and breathing heavy when confronted, the police report stated.
Once cops uncovered his peep show clips, Akram Ismail said 'he had a problem' and confessed to a 'compulsive disorder,' according to the Groveland Police report.
Store surveillance footage also caught the doc in awkward positions near women.

Groveland Police believe this wasn't the sicko doc's first time shopping for women.
"We don't know if there may have been more people at our Publix here in Groveland or if this may have happened elsewhere," Groveland Police Sgt. Stephanie Crews told the Sentinel. "We did notify surrounding agencies across Central Florida and asked if they had any similar incidents that he could be tied to."

This wasn't his first arrest. Ismail was charged with conspiracy to kill his former business partner in 2009. Charges were reduced and he was slapped with probation two years later after technical issues arose with wiretaps tied to the case, WFTV reported.
A drunken Ismail also forced a plane to turn back to the JFK terminal in 2005. He was given probation for resisting an air marshal, the Sentinel said.
Ismail was transported to Lake County Jail on Thursday, where he posted $5,000 bond.
