Pennsylvania police said that they busted three residents for having sex with each other on a roof on June 10, but the individuals involved are telling a different story.
A press release issued by the Northern Lancaster County Regional Police Department in Pennsylvania states that 24-year-old Amanda Howley, 29-year-old Joel T. Beger and 26-year-old Kevin Venbrux have been charged with disorderly conduct for creating physically offensive conditions after the incident.
It happened early in the morning, when a witness reported the suspects for allegedly having a threesome on the roof of a building. The officers went to investigate and spoke with the three and, according to the press release, they admitted to engaging in sexual intercourse, but said that they didn't think anybody could see them.
But not everybody agrees with that account.
On his Facebook page, Venbrux called the report "FAKE NEWS" and said that the true story was "nothing like that at all."
"Everyone had their clothing on," he explained on June 12. "We were just watching the sunrise. The cops came because of noise and the neighbors saw us up there kissing. Apparently that is considered a sex act now. As per usual with this things it's all getting [blown] outta proportion."
Venbrux went on to say that the three of them "certainly were all up on that roof being loud early in the morning," but the media accounts are "very very far from the actual truth," and that he wishes he "had a cool story" to tell everyone texting him about it.
"The news makes it look a lot cooler then it was," he explained on his page. "Before the s*** storm of social medial scolding, questions, and a million stories being made up about the situation. ... I apologize if this represents me as a person poorly, just remember. Not everything you read in the news is true lol."
According to Venbrux, the incident was "far from as raunchy as they are making it sound." He said he would describe the situation as "PG" or "PG13," at best, but certainly "nothing to call mom about."
In Pennsylvania, disruptive behavior is usually charged as a summary offense, so it is less serious than a felony or misdemeanor, according to FindLaw. However, summary convictions still show up on criminal records, and those who are found guilty can end up in jail for up to 90 days and can be fined up to $1500.
