GAINESVILLE, Fla., May 28 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said an officer interrupted a couple having late-night sex on a diving board located more than 30 feet above a public pool.
The Gainesville Police Department said an officer on patrol near the H. Spurgeon Cherry/Westside Pool at about 12:10 a.m. Thursday heard noises coming from inside the facility, which was surrounded by a locked fence, and used his flashlight to illuminate the couple having intimate relations atop the high dive, the Gainesville Sun reported Friday.
Officers said the 24-year-old man and 21-year-old woman, who ceased their sexual activities when they were spotted, were issued notices to appear on trespassing charges and released.
Police said the city does not have laws against sex in public places, but state laws and city ordinances prohibit the public exhibition of sexual organs.
Pool supervisor Jeff Moffitt said workers used bleach to clean the diving board before the pool opened Thursday morning.
