Caught On Tape

When someone is "caught on tape," the person has been recorded (either by a cassette, which has literal "tape," or more likely, some kind of digital data recorder) doing something bad, embarrassing, or scandalous (or all three). The word "caught" implies "caught in the act" of something improper. Ex.: "Mel Gibson's latest rant was caught on tape..."
