Police Interrupt Backseat Lovers

August 13, 1998

MADRID, Spain (AP) _ At Vistahermosa, which means ``beautiful view,″ visitors weren’t looking out over the ocean. About 50 people were peering into a parked car to watch a naked couple in the back seat having sex.

A neighbor complained and two police officers arrived Saturday night in Vistahermosa, the nightlife district of Puerto de Santa Maria, a southern beach resort about 400 miles from Madrid.

The officers waded through the crowd and asked the 42-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman to, well, knock it off and put their clothes back on.

``They were offending people,″ a Puerto de Santa Maria police spokesman said Thursday.

The lovers covered themselves and got out of the car, but allegedly hurled verbal abuse and fists at the officers. Reinforcements showed up and the lovers were taken away in handcuffs.
