Police say Brittany Pennington and Jonathan Howard had sex inside a car at a Hardee’s restaurant parking lot in Harlan, Kentucky, at around 10 a.m. on Feb. 29.
Several drive-thru customers sat in their cars and watched the couple's morning tryst "during the rush hour," according to authorities.
After a witness called the police, Harlan City Police Sgt. Jeff Owens confronted Pennington and Howard, reports the Harlan Daily Enterprise.
The lovers admitted to Owens that they had "made a mistake" inside their 1994 Ford Crown Victoria, notes The Smoking Gun.
The 20-something couple were charged with indecent exposure because they allegedly exposed their genitals "with the knowledge that their conduct was likely to cause affront or alarm.”
They were booked into the Harlan County Detention Center, and are being held in lieu of $2,000 bail.
