A man and a woman are facing charges of indecent exposure after allegedly being caught having sex in a fast food restaurant parking lot.
Brittany Pennington, 24, and Jonathan Howard, 24, both of Lynch, were arrested by Harlan City Police Sgt. Jeff Owens on Monday.
According to the citations, Howard and Pennington were caught in the Hardee’s parking lot during the rush hour having sex in a 1994 Ford Crown Victoria. Several cars were lined up to order, and the car Howard and Pennington were in was parked beside the drive thru line in plain view of the vehicles lined up to order. Howard and Pennington exposed their genitals with the knowledge their conduct was likely to cause affront or alarm to the surrounding public. The pair admitted to police they had sex in the Ford Crown Victoria and that they made a mistake.
Howard and Pennington were both charged with first-degree indecent exposure and lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center.
