A woman claims she was alerted by Instagram after a man recorded their sexual encounter and posted it online several months later. The 23-year-old man is now behind bars on a felony charge for video voyeurism.  

According to the probable cause report, deputies with the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office were contacted Tuesday by the victim.  

"The victim stated that she received notification from Instagram on her cell phone...this morning of her and [Gerald Alexander] having sex," the deputies noted in the report. "The victim stated she was tagged in the video by an unknown male, but it was her and [Alexander] having sex."  

The victim claims she was not aware that Alexander recorded their encounter and claims she did not give him permission to record.  

However, Alexander claims she did.  

"[Alexander] advised he did not record the victim without her knowing. He stated that it was her idea and that she knew the whole time they were having sex. [He] also stated that the victim is the one that set the phone up on the dresser by the TV in [his] room."  

Alexander was arrested and charged with one count of video voyeurism. He was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison and was released after posting a $10,000 bond.
