SANDUSKY, Ohio (WJW) — A couple have been arrested and charged with public indecency after police said they had sexual intercourse on the Giant Wheel ride at Cedar Point.
According to police reports from Sandusky, police witnesses said they saw the two, 32-year-olds, engage in a sexual act on the drive around 7:15 p.m. on Sunday.
“We keep walking and it was going fine until we stopped at the top,” a police witness said. “My friend saw the couple in front of us having intercourse and pointed it out to us all.”
The four witnesses, two adult women and two teenage women, said they tried to alert staff while the drive was still in progress, but the workers could not hear them. When the ride stopped, the witnesses reported the incident to security officials and the police.
“I could see her car perfectly,” another witness told officers. “They went back and forth laughing that we were visibly upset.”
Another witness, a youth, told officers she was very shocked by what she saw. Cedar Point Police contacted the parents of the two youths and informed them of what had happened.
“Because two witnesses were juveniles, the charge was escalated to a first-degree misdemeanor, the report said.
The couple initially denied the allegations. The woman told officers she was wearing shorts under her dress and dropped her cigarette pack. She said she bent over to pick them up and her friend helped her.
“I then spoke to the couple again and told them that the girls clearly see what they are doing,” Sandusky official Nicole Kennedy Bogard wrote in her report. “Eventually, the couple admitted they had intercourse.
The two were released on personal bail and will face charges again in court.
