MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Two Myrtle Beach residents are facing charges after being caught in a compromising position in a public park.

The incident report WMBF News obtained from Myrtle Beach Police states that officers were dispatched to Balsam Park Wednesday after receiving a public intoxication call.

When they arrived around 2:45 p.m., they found two individuals on Cedar Street lying down on the ground beside a bush, apparently trying to whisper.

The female, 64-year-old Audra Rodriguez, was on the ground with her garments around her ankles, and the male, 76-year-old James Colie Harsey, was reportedly performing a sexual act on her.

When she saw the police officer, Rodriguez pushed Harsey off of her. They were both transported to the Myrtle Beach Jail and charged with exposure of private parts in a lewd and lascivious manner and park ordinance violations.

The report notes that both were very intoxicated and surrounded by several bottles of vodka at the time of their arrests.

Booking records show Harsey was given a $5,000 surety bond. Bond for Rodriguez has not been set.
