A shameless couple spend their New Year’s Eve behind bars after apparently deciding to spice up their love life over dinner at a family-friendly Mexican restaurant in Austin.
31-year-old, Jonathan Hightower and Lashanda Fisher, 28, were arrested on Sunday for allegedly engaging in oral sex in full view of their fellow diners, among them children, at Baby Acapulco the night before.
According to an arrest affidavit, police officers were summoned to the Mexican eatery at 13609 North I-35 service road in Austin at 10.24pm on Saturday.

By the time cops arrived at the restaurant, Hightower and Fisher had left the eatery and went to the 7-11 gas station next door.
Cops interviewed several witnesses at Baby Acapulco, who reportedly told them they observed the loved-up duo having oral sex at their booth for five minutes.
The eye witnesses who spoke to police noted that they were very offended by the passionate pair’s behavior, and that multiple children were present.
According to the document cited by Austin-American Statesman, police later obtained surveillance video that confirmed the eyewitnesses’ accounts.

Both of them were taken into custody the next day and were charged with misdemeanor public lewdness, which is punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $4,000.
As of Tuesday morning, the lovers’ names were not listed in the Travis County Jail’s inmate database, suggesting that both have bonded out.
