Two people caught having sex in parking lot

Two people spent time in jail after they were caught completely naked and having sex behind a busy restaurant in Traverse City.

Police were called to the 100 block of South Union Street around 2:30am Sunday after an employee at the House of Doggs heard a woman screaming. Another employee checked outside the building and saw a man and woman having sex in the parking lot.

When officers arrived they found the 19-year-old Traverse City man and a 22-year-old Traverse City woman still completely naked and still engaged in sexual intercourse in the parking lot. Both were told to stop and get their clothing which was left next to a building a distance away. Both suspects stated the act they were involved in was completely consensual and that they had made a mistake by doing it at this location.

The House of Dogs restaurant was still open at the time and traffic was heavy in the area. Both suspects were taken into custody for gross indecency. The two were released on bond and will be back in court for arraignment on Sept. 10.
