What Happens In Vegas: Couple Arrested For Ferris Wheel Frolic
A couple arrested for having sex on the world’s tallest Ferris wheel in Las Vegas told police they were “just having a good time and didn’t think anyone would notice.”
They must have forgotten that the cabins on the Ferris wheel are glass walled and the naked couple were easily observed.
Police arrested Chloe Scordianos, 21, and Frank Panzica, 27, on Friday afternoon after workers spotted them cavorting nude on the 170-metre-tall High Roller Ferris wheel.
According to The Smoking Gun, a U.S. website specializing in published court documents, workers on the Ferris wheel saw Scordianos and Panzica smoking and undressing inside a cabin, and warned the 2 via the public address system to “put out the cigarettes and to put all their clothes back on.”
The couple initially complied but allegedly then stripped and proceeded to perform various sex acts. Three occupants of an adjacent cabin on the Ferris wheel were filming them with mobile phones, it is alleged.
The pair have been charged with commission of sex acts in public, a felony. Each has been released on USD 3,000 bail after spending the weekend in custody.
In an interview aired by ABC Eyewitness News in Chicago, Panzica said he had been due to marry another woman earlier the same day, but they had quarrelled and he had called off the wedding because he thought she was pregnant to another man.
After that, Panzica said he met Scordianos and they decided to go for a ride on the famous Ferris wheel. In a peculiar twist, the woman Panzica had been meant to marry paid his bail.
