Smoking crack, having sex in car net couple a trip to jail, Wichita police say

Police investigating a report of suspicious people in a field Thursday afternoon found a couple having sex and smoking crack in the backseat of a car.

When the officers ordered the couple out of the car in the 2000 block of South Osage shortly before 1:30 p.m., the woman immediately complied, Lt. Doug Nolte said. The man refused and officers eventually deployed a Taser. One of the probes became lodged in a thumb, and the man required medical treatment before he was taken to the Sedgwick County Jail.

Police found drug paraphernalia in the car, Nolte said. The man and woman, who are both 40, were booked into jail on suspicion of sex and drug offenses, police records show.

When officers contacted the woman’s husband, Nolte said, he instructed officers to leave the car in the field, which is between Seneca and McLean Boulevard, just west of the Arkansas River north of Pawnee.
