This might prove to be a very popular menu item...

But alas, it's illegal.

If they had not gone on the extra 20 seconds . . . would they still have been arrested? This case has some interesting issues.

In a likely, I hope, unrelated story, Chipolte has removed pork based menu items.

Typical cop over-reach. Sounds like they were having sex on a private deck that happened to be on the top floor of a building containing a Chipotle. When they went back into the apartment, that should have been the end of it. What's the exact benefit of throwing trumped-up charges at them?

If I saw something like this, I'd NEVER call a truffle-sniffer. I'd just look the other way and think "good for them." ****** that cop, and ***** the tout that called the cops. In a just world, the tout would have been arrested under peeping-Tom laws for observing a private roof deck.

I only do it on the roofs of actual Mexican restaurants. None of this chain pseudo stuff for me.

But hey, all seriousness aside, it's usually considered poor form/verboten to have sex in public view.

Yes, they should have been classy and made a sex tape.

No worse than doing it in a park or on a beach at night. Cop should have told them to move on. They moved on (into their apartment) so the cop should have gone away. Or done the world a favor, tripped, and fell off the roof -- maybe it would have knocked some sense into his Peeping Tom brain.

I suspect they weren't resisting arrest as much as being embarrassed and running in to get their clothes. The "crime" (which hurt exactly nobody) was stopped at that point. Why bother pursuing them?

S'funny, people want to be voyeurs but they want to do so in private. Go figure.

Have you ever been tasked with having to ask someone to stop having sex in public? I lived and worked for a few years at Harbin Hot Springs about 90 miles north of SF. Clothing optional, there's a warm pool in front of the covered hot pool where people often canoodle, snuggle and otherwise engage is discreet foreplay. Now and then people decide they can't wait. There's a strict rule against it and for good reason. One night I was on security and two couples were simultaneously going at it full tilt, water sloshing and flesh slapping. Everyone else was doing a retreat, people generally are just uncomfortable with that.

Hard to explain, but I had a serious visceral discomfort with going up and telling them they had to take it inside. One guy especially was doing the frowny 'oh dude' thing. Very annoying. What, I'm going to wade into the water and pull him off of her??! I had to get a firm sound in my voice, 'get out NOW.' No way were we going to sacrifice the visit of a few dozen guests for these two moron couples.

I suspect that cop felt much the same way and when they kept going thought 'well F these A-holes.' I sorta doubt this was a really secluded balcony.

They went on for (OMG!) a full 20 seconds. Did he get out a stopwatch and time it, or just count Mississippis? People in flagrante delicto don't always think straight, or rather, they think with other body parts than the brain and don't always pay attention to their surroundings. Fact is, they stopped -- time for him to go do something productive.

Cop was jealous because he didn't get any play recently?

spdrun in his full time mode of dumping on cops. No matter what, the cops were incompetent fools. This fine couple was only trying to have some fun, put meaning into their lives, make a joyful noise unto the Lord, etc. until the cop jumped out of the donut shop long enough to life miserable for them.
