A US man who was caught having sex on a Ferris wheel with a woman he had just met was supposed to get married to another woman that same day.
27-year-old, Philip Frank Panzica, was allegedly caught having sex on a big wheel in Las Vegas was due to marry a different woman later that day.
Panzica was arrested after allegedly stripping off and performing a sex act in front of shocked tourists on the popular attraction.
The 27-year-old and 21-year-old Chloe Scordianos, whom he had sex with, appeared before a court last week after being hauled off the 550ft High Roller big wheel on the Las Vegas strip.
Panzica himself made the revelation that he was due to marry fiancée Mistie Bozant on the very day he was caught having sex in public but that he discovered she was pregnant with another man’s baby.
He told the New York Daily News: “I really do appreciate it and I feel bad about everything.
“The thing that hurts me the most is her kids. I love her babies.”
Stunned customers say they saw the pair naked and romping on the floor of one of the attraction’s glass pods. The pair were warned via an intercom system when tourists and staff noticed them stripping off and smoking on board the observation wheel.
But security officers say despite the warning they continued to romp on the floor of the 30-minute ride before being arrested at the end by police.
The pair have since appeared in court charged with committing sex acts in public. Scordianos denied the offence and added individuals should have an expectation of privacy on the High Roller. The pair are expected back in court next month.
The High Roller, part of the Linq Hotel has stepped up security following a series of public indecency incidents in recent months.
