Stephen Bear cracked jokes about multiple police charges against him and his 'embarrassing' arrest in a video posted to YouTube.
The reality TV personality, 31, was arrested at Heathrow Airport on his birthday last week shortly after returning to the UK from Dubai.
Appearing on his newly launched YouTube channel, Bear said to the camera: "Where do I f**king start?
"I'm back from Dubai and I've actually got a criminal case over my head. I've been charged with some s**t, man.
"I've been charged from the Essex police with harassment, obstruct police officer, exposure and voyeurism.
Stephen Bear claims he's been charged with harassment, exposure, voyeurism & obstructing police
"So let's start with the first one. Harassment doesn't sound good does it? Exposure. Not too sure what exposure means.
"Obstructing a police officer. What do you reckon I did? Do you reckon I got in his way?
"So the thing is with voyeurism because I've been to Dubai and I've gone on a voyage – I'm getting nicked for travelling to Dubai because I've been on a voyage.
"Do you blame Captain Cook for sailing the seven seas? No you don't. So right now I can't talk about the case.
"It's under investigation. I'm on bail until 2 February. So right now they've got my passport."
Bear told viewers of his new YouTube channel he was put in a cell for 15 hours on his birthday
He described his arrest at Heathrow Aiport as 'embarrassing'
Speaking about his arrest on Friday, Bear said: "When I arrived on the 15 January I was going to surprise my mum that I was coming home. No one knew I was coming home.
"I had four police officers waiting for me at the airport. Straight away they handcuffed me, it was quite embarrassing actually."
He added: "I got questioned twice. I was in the cell for 14 hours, 15 hours on my birthday bearing in mind.
"While I was in the police cell they have gone into my house, smashed open the door. They said they had a warrant. I've had to get everything fixed – and they've busted my f***ing front gate too."

He later said to the camera: "To all the haters out there, 'I ain't going anywhere.'"
A spokesperson from Essex Police told the Mirror Online on Saturday: "A 31-year-old man from Loughton, who was arrested on suspicion of disclosing private sexual images or film without consent with intent to cause distress, voyeurism, harassment and obstructing a police officer, has been released on bail until 10 February."
Essex Police says it is looking into the claims in the video.
