BRADENTON BEACH, Fla. -- An overtly amorous couple shocked beach-goers Sunday on Bradenton Beach, resulting in the couple's first arrest after one person recorded their actions.

20-year-old Elissa Alvarez and 39-year-old Jose Caballero have been arrested and charged with Lewd or Lascivious Exhibition.

According to a report from the Bradenton Beach Police, officers were called to the 500 block of Gulf Drive South shortly after 8pm on Sunday. Witnesses said the two were laying on a sheet and began to fondle each other before having intercourse.

The witness was upset because her 4-year-old daughter witnessed the events.  Six other witnesses also filed complaints, with one even recording video of the interaction.

A grandmother visiting from Hillsborough County spotted the two, and started recording video. She says the couple would not stop. Eventually someone called police and the couple was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior.

The grandmother who captured it all on video told ABC 7 on the phone that she has never seen anything at the beach quite like this before.

Most beach-goers we spoke to concur. "It’s not’s not something that happens all the time. It's not common."

Others say if they had seen it -- they would have taken action.  "I would probably go up to them and say something. There’s kids out on the beach, people on vacation. They're giving us a bad name. It's just not right."

One beach-goer said, "Probably would move away from it. Maybe make some noises like cough--give them the indication that I’m right next to them. Kind of a private thing that should be behind closed doors."

Others say they don’t have a problem with the couple. "I am in no position to object to what that couple did on Bradenton Beach. I was actually conceived here on Siesta Key Beach. They were on the red lifeguard stand during a thunderstorm.”

    It's probably evolution. Their human rights should be respected - It must be like a darwinian moment. People who think intelligent design may also be correct. The old lady probably has other genes. May be a disability with interpersonal skill issues.
    If turtles were out in Florida having recreational time migration and endangered species specialist wouldn't dare think of arresting them.
    It's inconsiderate or pessimism from femmes who want to dominate to be saying things about other woman who caring for all the heart broken guys. Also Florida is hot, so that gives more sun energy to meeting. Most women and too much into talk shows because of the times and snobbing or taking their men for granted. If it were Kim Kardashian the photo shoot would have been different.

    If it was nighttime and no children present I'd have laughed and shaken my head. But if it were the middle of the day and children were present, I'd probably confront them and ask them to stop but doing so in a friendly manner.

    I can see why some people would call the police. These people are obviously either drunk or stuck on stupid. Maybe both [wink]
