A Boynton Beach man and South Carolina woman were arrested after they were caught having sex on the beach, Manalapan Police said.
Ward Powell, 53, and Tanya Wheeler, 34, were arrested on charges of lewd or lascivious behavior and indecent exposure in public after they were spotted in the sand in the 2000 block of S. Ocean Boulevard Tuesday morning, according to a Manalapan Police Department arrest report obtained by the Sun-Sentinel.
Powell told police they had been skinny dipping in the ocean when "one thing led to another," according to the report.
The couple was spotted frolicking around 8:30 a.m. by a person who called 911 to report two suspicious people having sex on the beach, the report said.
When officers arrived, they found Powell and Wheeler still naked. Powell apologized and said he knew better, the report said.
Both were booked into Palm Beach County Jail Tuesday and later released.
