A quick kiss on the cheek between a couple is widely considered an acceptable public display of affection.
But more than 20 minutes of full blown sexual intercourse could be considered pushing things.
The latter is the situation Shanna Kelley, 35, and 37-year-old Sean Dempsey apparently found themselves in about 12:30 a.m. April 2 in the area of the Tiki Bar restaurant in Fort Pierce, according to recently released records.
A Fort Pierce police officer dispatched to the scene saw a woman with her pants down to her ankles and a nude dude “engaging in sexual intercourse in plain view of the road and surrounding areas,” a report states.
The man, identified as Dempsey, quickly “broke contact from the female and began pulling his pants up, while laughing.”
The woman, identified as Kelley, told investigators that Dempsey is her boyfriend and was in town for a visit.
She said they didn’t see anyone around, so they started having sex on the park picnic table.
Dempsey, who smelled of booze, said he had “a bit” to drink, saying he was trying to “have fun.”
He grew angry and made statements such as, “Why can`t you be cool, if I wanted to I could be a real (rectum) and make this arrest hard for you.”
Meanwhile, a man told investigators that he and a friend were fishing and the couple copulated for more than 20 minutes.
Kelley, of the 300 block of North 11th Street in Fort Pierce, and Dempsey, of the 100 block of Serenata Court in Port St. Lucie, each were arrested on an indecent exposure charge, while Dempsey also was arrested on a disorderly intoxication charge.
