Her Merri Way

MAY 18--A 62-year-old woman and her 55-year-old beau were arrested last night for having sex on the front steps of a Florida dental office, a lewd display that was in full view of passersby, police charge.

According to St. Petersburg cops, Merri-Anne Bromley and David Wheeler were “having sexual intercourse” outside the offices of St. Pete Modern Dentistry (seen below) around 7:15 PM. The front steps of the building, a police report notes, “are within full view of the public and anybody passing by.”

Bromley and Wheeler, an arrest affidavit notes, were not initially deterred by the arrival of Officer Jonathan Reeves. “The intercourse continued in the presence of law enforcement,” Reeves reported.

Pictured above, Bromley and Wheeler were subsequently separated and charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, a misdemeanor. Bromley is locked up on $250 bond, while Wheeler was released from jail late this afternoon on his own recognizance.

Bromley’s rap sheet includes prior convictions for theft, obstruction, and carrying an open container. Wheeler has been arrested dozens of times and, most recently, served a year in state prison for felony battery. (1 page)
