GLOUCESTER, England, June 18 (UPI) -- British prosecutors said six university students boarded a bus dressed as characters from "Top Gun" and performed lewd sex acts while on the vehicle.
Gloucester Crown Court heard Friday Ryan Lissamore, 19, Oliver Graham, 21, Lewis Baker, 22, James Devlin, 20, Alex Bye, 20, and Daniel Hammond, 20, stripped off their clothes on the bus Sept. 20 and performed "unusual" sex acts including masturbation, The Sun reported Friday.
Prosecutors said witnesses included four 17-year-old girls.
The defendants are all University of Gloucestershire students who performed the stunt as part of initiation rituals for the rugby and soccer teams, the court heard.
"They were clearly drunk and many of them were tied together," prosecutor Julian Kesner said. "What they were being asked to do on the bus by the more senior members of the clubs were acts of outraging public decency. The acts can be described as both revolting and disgusting."
Baker, Devlin, Bye and Hammond pleaded guilty to committing obscene acts in front of the four teenage girls while Lissamore and Graham pleaded guilty to charges of outraging public decency.
All six students were ordered to perform community service and forced to pay prosecution costs. They were also banned from businesses selling alcohol for 160 days.
