BRADENTON BEACH, Fla. — A Florida couple was arrested Sunday after a grandmother used her cell phone to record them having sex on a public beach in front of dozens of people.
FOX 13 reported that Jose “Benny” Caballero and Elissa Alvarez were charged with lewd and lascivious behavior for the alleged crime, which took place over a long period of time in front of dozens of people including families, police said.
The grandmother, who said she has lived there since 1978 said she has never seen anything like this on the area beaches.
Witnesses said the couple went at it for 25 minutes, then took a quick dip in the water. They then returned to their beach towel, where after a nap, witnesses say the couple began to engage in more sex acts.
“They laid on the beach and passed out for hours,” the grandmother said about the couple after they returned from their dip in the ocean. “We thought they were dead, but when they woke up, they cuddled for a while, then started into the same thing they did before.”
A parent who witnessed the couple’s behavior reportedly called police. At one point the grandmother said she pulled her cell phone out and recorded the couple with the intention of turning the video over to police once they arrived.
