A Wisconsin couple stopped for drunk driving shocked their arresting officer when they began to have sex in the back of the squad car.
Heather Basten and Travis Husnick were arrested after a police officer saw their car drift into direct traffic. The officer pulled their car over at a gas station parking lot, where the couple admitted they both had been drinking. Additionally, both Basten and Husnick were not legally allowed to drive.
When police searched the couple’s car, two open cans of Busch light beer were found on the floorboards. When asked, Husnick even admitted to drinking them. Basten later admitted to shooting up meth with a used syringe found in her purse by police.
Both were arrested and placed in the back of the cop car, then driven to the hospital for detox. However, on the way, the officer was forced to pull the car over when the couple began having sex.
“While transporting, deputy Zahn observed Travis lay on top of Heather in the backseat,” one officer wrote in a police report. “Deputy Zahn then saw Heather's legs go up touching the ceiling and heard her begin to moan loudly.”
The officer then stopped the car, told Husnick to pull his pants up and placed him in the front seat of the car.
During a court hearing, Circuit Court Judge Jay Conley was at a loss for sentencing.
"What do I sentence a guy who has sex in a squad car to?” Conley said. "It's not like you have a lot of law-school courses or training on what do you sentence a guy who has sex in a squad car to."
Husnick was sentenced to 90 days in jail for lewd and lascivious conduct. Basten was sentenced to 48 days in custody and ordered to pay a fine of more than $1,236.
