A man and his girlfriend have been arrested after police say they were caught having sex at a popular ferris wheel tourist attraction, 150 metres above the centre of Cincinnati.
The police says that the couple’s sex romp on the SkyStar Wheel on The Banks on Thursday evening took place in front of children and others, according to reports.
Michael Mathisen, 30, of Florence, Ohio, and Lauren Wilder, 31, of North-Hill College, Ohio, were drunk at the time, according to the court documents, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
