Couple Get Caught Having Oral Sex At ‘Family Friendly’ Restaurant In Front Of Children

On Saturday, a couple apparently decided that they wanted to engage in oral sex and that nothing was going to stop them, not even the fact that they were inside a “family-friendly” restaurant.

A manager at Austin, Texas’s Baby Acapulco Tex-Mex restaurant allegedly caught Jonathan Hightower, 31, and Lashanda Fisher, 28, in the act inside a booth, reported Fox News. According to KXAN, the couple was going at it for about five minutes, all in front of young kids. The restaurant even reportedly offers a “kids eat free” deal at least once a week. A police affidavit states that other patrons in the restaurant were offended by the sexual act.

One patron told police she was trying to eat when she caught a glimpse of the X-rated sight. She said she “observed the female suspect giving oral sex to the male suspect” and that she saw the woman’s “head bobbing

A female passenger on a flight from Portland, Oregon to Sacramento, California had a violent mid-air meltdown Saturday after she was caught smoking in the airplane’s lavatory.

Police Release Body Cam Footage Of The Night A Republican Senator Was Caught In A Motel With A Teen Boy

Police from Moore, Oklahoma have released shocking body cam footage of the night a Republican Senator was found in a motel room with a 17-year-old boy he met off Craigslist.

The release of the footage, shot in March, came just days after former Sen. Ralph Shortey, 35,  pleaded guilty to federal child sex trafficking last week. As a result of his plea deal, child pornography charges were dropped, according to KFOR.

On March 9, police went to a Super 8 Motel for a welfare check. Soon, police began knocking on the senator’s door.

“What we are worried about is you having a juvenile in there. Yeah, this one,” a cop said to the door.

After seemingly getting dressed, Shortey answered the door in a religious tee, which is printed with a bible verse Ephesians 5:22 (which references women submitting to their husbands) in addition to the phrase, “now go make me a sandwich.”

“We

In the footage, 18-year-old Gabrielle Canales appears to be caught with her hand in the driver’s tip jar, just as she and two friends are finishing their ride and about to exit the car.

He said he complained to Uber, who told him to contact the authorities.

“I told them that the young lady took my money from my tip jar and they said she advised them that she didn’t. They wanted me to go to the police station, but you
