A couple shopping in a Kansas Walmart store have been arrested for ‘lewd and lascivious behavior’ and theft after stealing a tube of K-Y Jelly and using it to engage in a public sexual act.
With sizzling temperatures in Hutchinson, Kansas reaching the 100s, Julian R. Call, 22, and girlfriend, Tina F. Gianakon, 35, created some of their own heat on Sunday after grabbing the lubricant and groping each other.
The couple, who were said to be completely sober and drug-free, were arrested on site and posted bond two hours later.
Though the Hutchinson City police gave sparse details, according to the Reno County Sheriff’s Department, the couple are assumed to be residents of the Kansas town. Giving a local address, it also appears that the two live together.
The report detailed how Walmart employees alerted police to the over-zealous display of affection when they were disturbed by the explicit nature of the contact. Additionally, the couple used a tube of K-Y Jelly that they never paid for.
Hutchinson News described the act as ‘groping under clothing.’
But ABC affiliate KAKE took the story a little further and used the term ‘sexual fondling’.
The couple were given a chance to cool off as they were locked up in separate cells.
Bond was posted by both two hours later to the tune of $1000 each.
Mr Call and Ms Gianakon will now have five days to appear in court.
Walmart have yet to provide comment about the incident though the Hutchinson Police said they had never heard of such a thing happening before.
