SEBASTIAN, Fla. (CBS12) — Something fishy was apparently going on in Sebastian on Tuesday and a police officer caught himself two suspects.

It started with a witness near Riverview Park on Indian River.

The witness looked out toward a fishing dock and found the pair in their birthday suits, somewhat occupied, and she ratted them out.

According to both arrest reports, “The reportee of this incident indicated that she observed the defendant’s [body part] during the course of the two having intercourse.”

So, she called a police officer who positioned himself to confirm her observation.

For Timothy Wendel, the officer wrote, “Upon my arrival, I observed the defendant and co-defendant engaged in intercourse as they were on the fishing dock exposed to the public.”

For Ashley Fuller, he wrote, “Upon my arrival, I observed the defendant engaged in intercourse as she was on top of the co-defendant.”

Furthermore, for Fuller, 36, “The defendant appeared to be very intoxicated. I observed alcohol bottles on scene during this incident. I could smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from the defendant’s person.”

For Wendel, 29, “The defendant was in possession of alcohol during my contact with him. He also appeared to be very intoxicated with slurred speech and a strong odor of alcohol emitting from his person.”

That wasn’t all.

Both were taken into custody and charged with “Breach of the peace; disorderly conduct,” which is a misdemeanor.

According to the statute, “Whoever commits such acts as are of a nature to corrupt the public morals, or outrage the sense of public decency, or affect the peace and quiet of persons who may witness them, or engages in brawling or fighting, or engages in such conduct as to constitute a breach of the peace or disorderly conduct, shall be guilty of a misdemeanor of the second degree.”

Both were booked Tuesday evening.

The judge released Fuller, of Sebastian, on her own recognizance. His bond was set at $500 and he’s still in jail.
