Vero Beach Duo

MARCH 18--A couple was arrested Saturday afternoon for having sex on the sidewalk in front of a Popeyes, in plain view of passing motorists, Florida police charge.

Responding to a report of lewd behavior, a sheriff’s deputy located two suspects trysting on a patch of grass across from the Vero Beach restaurant (which is directly adjacent to U.S. Highway 1).

According to arrest reports, the cop spotted Arnold Mackey, 70, “making a thrusting motion while on top of” April White, 44. When confronted by Deputy Eric Brashears around 2 PM, the duo began “adjusting their shorts.”

Mackey, the cop noted, “appeared flustered” and was unable to “fully pull his shorts up which left his penis fully exposed to oncoming traffic.”

Claiming she had done nothing wrong, White reportedly struggled with the cop and called him a “faggot” and other obscenities as he sought to restrain her. White, who smelled of alcohol, was “escorted” to the ground (where police found four empty bottles of vodka and an unopened bottle of rum).

A motorist who called 911 after spotting the duo said he “did a ‘double take’ because he couldn’t believe what he was seeing.” The witness added that “the female had her legs spread open” and “the male was ‘inserting his fingers’ inside the female in full view of traffic.”

After being read his rights, Mackey reportedly said it was “not his intention to expose himself” and that he had asked White to leave the side of the road, “but she refused.” Recognizing that he was in “plain view” of passing motorists, Mackey said that he would “apologize to the judge.”

Both White and Mackey were arrested for exposure of sexual organs, a misdemeanor. White was also charged with resisting arrest and disorderly intoxication. Both remain behind bars, with White’s bond set at $7000, while Mackey needs to post $5000. (2 pages)
