When this cop explained "the right to remain silent," he didn't expect to hear grunts and moans.
Earlier this week, a Wisconsin couple -- 33-year-old Travis Husnik and 29-year-old Heather Basten -- were sentenced to 90 and 48 days of jail respectively for, according to the police report, making love in the backseat of a squad car after an arrest for drunken driving in August.
Specifically, the officer heard Basten "moan loudly" and noticed her legs "touching the ceiling." He then stopped the car and realized the pair were "having sexual intercourse," based on the fact that he could "see both of their privates." (We'd say they kept digging themselves deeper after the initial arrest, but it sounds more like they kept plowing.)
In court, the prosecutor was basically at a loss for words, saying, "This is kind of...it's a little disgusting," reports the Green Bay Press-Gazette. Even Husnik's own attorney said, "We're in complete agreement with the state that this was completely unacceptable behavior."
Judge Jay Conley didn't take kindly to the incident. "At a minimum, the mildest word that I can think of, the most favorable word I can think of, is your conduct is completely disrespectful to the officer," he said during the hearing. "The process of being arrested is supposed to be somewhat unpleasant ... and you end up having a tryst. Incredible."
The judge also wondered aloud, "What do I sentence a guy who has sex in squad car to?"
Husnik ultimately received a harsher sentence due to breaking his probation with the "lewd conduct," though Basten received $1,236 in fines and fees for actually being behind the wheel. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law -- or anything you spray.
