A COP was dis­ci­plined af­ter al­legedly al­low­ing two sus­pects to en­gage in sex­ual ac­tiv­ity in his pa­trol car.

Zach­ery Moel­len­dick, 23, and Krista Leigh, 24, were ar­rested for al­legedly shoplift­ing at a Wal­mart in July 2018.

An in­ter­nal af­fairs re­port claims the cou­ple had stolen jew­ellery and a baby toy from the store in Fort Pierce, Florida.

Of­fi­cer Doug McNeal ar­rested them and put them in the back of his pa­trol ve­hi­cle.


The Fort Pierce Po­lice Depart­ment al­leges that Of­fi­cer McNeal vi­o­lated pol­icy by fail­ing to prop­erly search or re­strain the cou­ple be­fore the trip to the sta­tion even started.

But once the ride did get un­der way, the de­part­men­tal vi­o­la­tions in­creased, ac­cord­ing to the re­port.

Video ap­pears to show the cou­ple kiss­ing and cud­dling on the way to St Lu­cie County Jail.

At some point, Of­fi­cer McNeal ap­par­ently de­cides to help the at­mos­phere a bit by play­ing Barry White‘s mood-set­ting clas­sic love song Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love.

Then, ac­cord­ing to the re­port, Of­fi­cer McNeal started fin­ish­ing up his pa­per­work while the cou­ple started work­ing on some­thing else.

“Due to Leigh and Moel­len­dick’s body pos­ture and arm move­ments, it is ap­par­ent Moel­len­dick and Leigh are sex­u­ally plea­sur­ing each other with their hands,” the re­port reads.

“This con­tin­ues for ap­prox­i­mately six min­utes.”

Dis­ci­plinary ac­tion was taken and Of­fi­cer McNeal was sus­pended for 20 days with­out pay.
