FORT PEERS (Florida) – An officer at Fort Peers allowed a man and woman from Florida to have sex behind a police car after they were arrested for shoplifting in a Walmart store.
An internal investigation revealed that Fort Pierce Police Officer Doug McNeill had arrested Zachary Mollendick, 23, and Christa Lee, 23, from Palm Bay, Florida for allegedly stealing jewelry and a toy for children in July 2018. Lee placed her behind her back and then moved her handcuffs forward to allow her to smoke a cigarette. Mellendick was on crutches so the officer didn’t handcuff him.
The couple was then transferred to the St. Lucie County Jail with reservations in the back of a patrol vehicle.
The couple was allegedly seen praising each other in the backseat police car while McNeill sang Barry White’s “Can’t Get Enough Of You Babe” from the stereo.
The deputies at the prison port noticed the couple’s sexual activities.
McNeill was later reprimanded for not complying with police procedures, and for inappropriate behavior.
