MELROSE, Fla. (CBS Tampa) - A man was arrested Tuesday for engaging in a sex act in a public park with a drunken woman who had fallen off of a bench.
According to the Gainesville Sun, the trouble began around 2:15 that afternoon when a 35-year-old woman from Keystone Heights fell off of the bench while inebriated. An unnamed Hampton man, 19, had jumped out of nearby Lake Santa Fe, seemingly with the intent of helping her up.
Soon after he reached her side, however, the pair reportedly began to engage in a sex act while others were around to witness it – including a 12-year-old boy.
Deputies with the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office arrived on the scene soon after and arrested the man, who now faces one charge of lewd and lascivious conduct.
The Sun learned that the woman will also be charged for her actions using the sworn complaint, but that she first had taken to the hospital for treatment due to her level of intoxication after police assessed the situation.
