TREASURE ISLAND — A young couple was arrested for engaging in intimate relations Monday night on Sunset Beach, according to police, in full view of 50 patrons and their children at Caddy's restaurant and bar.
Steven Perry, 22, and Erica Huerta, 21, were each arrested on a felony charge of lewd and lascivious exhibition.
According to Treasure Island police reports, the incident took place about 7:30 p.m. on the beach outside Caddy's at 9000 W. Gulf Blvd.
The couple engaged in various acts for a period of 30 minutes. They did so while they were about 100 feet from about 50 patrons at the restaurant, according to police reports. Several children under the age of 16 were even closer to the couple — within about 50 feet — according to arrest reports.
Perry, of Lutz, and Huerta, of Tallahassee, were booked into the Pinellas County jail. Perry was freed Tuesday afternoon after posting $10,000 bond. Huerta was still being held Tuesday night in lieu of $2,500 bail.
