1. When a police officer in Ibiza made a routine traffic stop, he didn’t expect there to be six people having sex inside.
As the Diaro de Mallorca reports ( via The Local), that’s exactly what he found.
A full-blown orgy was taking place in the nine-seater van, but the revellers – who were all Swiss tourists – weren’t arrested for having sex while on the move but for not wearing their seatbelts.
Each offender was fined €200, but this was reduced by half in return for “prompt payment”, the Diaro de Mallorca reported, and were then sent on their way. Police reportedly said this was hardly the first time they had caught people having sex in cars, but this may be the first time they’d been caught while moving.
The driver, who was stopped on Playa de’n Bossa last Wednesday, tested negative for alcohol after taking a breathaliser test although he was warned for his reckless driving.
