Cops: Couple charged for sex on Sea Isle beach

A Philadelphia couple has been charged with lewdness for allegedly having sex off the shore of a Sea Isle City beach.

Matthew McPeak, 27, and Stephanie Wallington, 23, were arrested Sunday, police said.

Officers saw the couple engaged in extreme PDA in the ocean near the 46th Street beach around 4 p.m., police said. By that time, a crowd of spectators had already formed, according to investigators.

Police directed the duo out of the water. An eyewitness reportedly told CBSPhilly that the female suspect took a long time to emerge because she had trouble tying up her bikini bottoms.

Officers took both suspects into custody and later released them on a summons.
