Why do these stories always seem to come out of Florida?
Authorities say they ruined a couple’s steamy encounter in the back of a police car by slapping them with more charges.
The unlucky officer who made the discovery worked for the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office. According to the arrest report, the handcuffed Florida couple in the back of the cruiser removed their clothes and began to have sex.
The sheriff’s deputy “opened the door to stop them”.
It happened Friday night just before midnight when police say they stopped a man and woman who were riding bicycles with no lights on a street in Fernandina Beach. That’s a city outside Jacksonville.
“As the two bikes cut across the read, they were almost hit by another vehicle…due to them not having any lights on,” a Nassau County Sheriff’s Office deputy said.
He began questioning the suspects – 35-year-old Megan Mondanaro and 31-year-old Aaron Thomas – when he noted they had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and stunk of booze.
Mondanaro refused to perform field sobriety tests, and the deputy concluded she was cycling while impaired.
“Megan was arrested and placed in the backseat of my patrol vehicle,” Officer Mark Hunter reported.
Then the officer turned to Thomas, who was arrested after he failed on some sobriety tests and showed “signs of impairment.”
The officer searched his backpack and found seven full cans of Four Loko and one empty one. According to Thomas, they were coming from the Hammerhead Beach Bar.
“Aaron was arrested and placed in the backseat of my patrol vehicle with Megan, who was already arrested,” Hunter said.
The deputy stood outside his squad car waiting for a vehicle to bring them to jail. According to arrest reports, that’s when “Megan and Aaron took their clothes off and started to have sex.”
You can imagine the exasperation of the officer when he “opened up the door to stop them.” But they were already going at it.
“Aaron was naked and Megan had her pants down where her vaginal area was visible. I also observed her bra was half way off and her breasts were fully visible,” he said.
While Thomas was being taken out of the car, he managed to get away from a second deputy who got knocked to the ground.
By this point, Thomas, naked, had somehow moved his handcuffed hands to the front of his body. He then took off through a parking lot.
Where was he found? Behind a nearby Cold Stone Creamery.
Then there was Mondanaro, or “Miss Thirsty” as the tattoo on her left arm identifies her.
While being moved into another car, officers say she “became violent and starting kicking at” a deputy.
She ended up being forced to the ground, where she suffered abrasions on her face, which you can see in the mug shot.
She’s now locked up in lieu of $12,508 bond. She’s with DUI, resisting officers, exposure of sexual organs, and engaging in lascivious acts.
Thomas is facing similar charges and is being held without bond. He’s also facing charges including escape and making threats against public officials counts.
