NORFOLK, Va. — A Virginia couple has admitted to getting drunk and having sex in the middle of a shopping center parking lot.

“[I] was in the mood and that’s basically what happened,” 36-year-old Kimberly M. Jackson told WTKR.

Authorities received calls about an exposure in progress at 6025 E. Virginia Beach Blvd. on Tuesday. The caller told dispatchers that a couple was involved in a sexual act in the parking lot.

Once police arrived, they found Jackson and her boyfriend, Earl Palmer, in the parking lot. At the time, the man was unconscious and unresponsive. He was taken to Sentara Leigh Hospital for treatment.

Jackson was arrested and charged for being drunk in public.

“The alcohol made me think I wouldn’t. I’m not into erotic public sex or anything like that,” Jackson said.

Police told WTKR the woman’s boyfriend was unconscious, but he says he was just passed out from drinking.

“I’m here trying to clear her name and let them know I consented to that, I just didn’t finish the job as you could say,” says Palmer.

WTKR asked why they decided to do this in the middle of the parking lot in the middle of the day.

“Everyone wants to do something spontaneous. I’m not being disrespectful to you. Have you ever done anything spontaneous?” asked Palmer.
