A Houston man and a New York woman have been arrested and are now facing felony charges after they were recorded having sex during a 30-minute ride in a glass-enclosed cabin on a Ferris wheel 550 feet above the Las Vegas Strip.
According to Daily Mail, Phillip Frank Panzica III and Chloe Scordianos were arrested on February 5 after taking a ride alone together on the High Roller. Police say the incident was recorded on security cameras as officers told the couple to stop. It was also recorded from a car below on a cell phone.
“They both said they were just having a good time and didn’t think anyone would notice,” the police report read. “[CCTV footage] clearly showed Scordianos laying on her back in the center of the cabin. Panzica was on his knees over Scordianos and removed her dress.”
“He also removed his clothes while standing up, exposing his penis and bare buttocks, allowing anyone in public to see,” it added.
Panzica’s attorney declined to comment, but Scordianos’ lawyer said his client had an expectation of privacy. A judge has set a court date on March 9 to see if this can be resolved without a trial.
