SANDUSKY, Ohio (WTVG) - Two people were arrested after police say they were seen having sex on the Ferris wheel at Cedar Point.

David Davis, 32, and Heather Johnston, 32, were arrested on Public Indecency charges after the incident Sunday night, according to Sandusky Police Department reports.

Police reports say there were several witnesses, two of whom are juveniles. The witnesses told officers they were on the Giant Wheel ride and could see the suspects in the cart above them. They said they could clearly see the suspects genitals and could feel the cart shaking.

“The group said that the couple knew that they were watching and started laughing and continued their behavior,” the police report read.

Officers who responded said one of the witnesses was very shaken up about what she saw. The girl told officers the incident was “very traumatizing.”

Police said the couple initially denied the allegations. Johnston told officials she bent over to pick up a pack of cigarettes she dropped and Davis tried to help her. They later admitted they had sex on the ride.

The couple was arrested and taken to the Erie County Jail.
