Police: Pair taped having sex on Bradenton Beach
BRADENTON (FOX 13) - Police arrested a couple accused of having sex in front of dozens Sunday afternoon on Bradenton beach, and it was all caught on tape.
Jose "Benny" Caballero and Elissa Alvarez were charged with lewd and lascivious behavior.
"This went on for about 25 minutes," one witness said.
Several families were in the vicinity of Caballero and Alvarez while they were having sex.
A grandmother started recording it when the couple would not stop. She said she planned to turn it over to police once they arrived.
"I've lived here since 1978 and I go to the beaches and I've never seen anything like this," she said.
Witnesses said after the first 25 minutes, the couple took a quick dip in the water, then returned to their beach towel.
"They laid on the beach and passed out for hours," The grandmother said. "We thought they were dead, but when they woke up, they cuddled for a while, then started into the same thing they did before."
One parent had enough, called police, then confronted the two.
Witnesses say Caballero became "mouthy" with police officers as they hauled him off in his bathing suit.
