Police arrested a couple after a manager at a North Austin restaurant noticed them engaging in oral sex at a booth in front of customers, according to an arrest affidavit.
Jonathan Hightower, 31, and Lashanda Fisher, 28, were arrested Sunday for public lewdness, a Class A misdemeanor punishable by a fine of up to $4,000 and a jail sentence of up to a year.
Police responded at 10:24 p.m. Saturday to the Baby Acapulco restaurant at 13609 North I-35 service road, the affidavit said. It said the restaurant security officer told police the two suspects had left the scene and entered a 7-Eleven gas station next to the restaurant.
Police spoke to witnesses who said they saw the two engaging in oral sex for about five minutes at their booth, according to the affidavit. Their descriptions matched those of Hightower and Fisher, the document said.
The affidavit said witnesses were very offended by the suspects’ behavior and multiple children were present.
Surveillance video obtained by police also confirmed the witness statements, the affidavit said.
