LAS VEGAS, NV (WFLA) – A man and a woman were arrested for having sex on a Ferris wheel in Las Vegas, KTNV reported citing local authorities. The man was in town to marry another woman.

The man Phillip Frank Panzica III, 27, of Houston, TX, and his fiancee Mistie Bozant met a few months ago and traveled to Vegas to tie the knot. But Panzica thought his fiance was pregnant with another man’s baby and he took to the streets of Vages to heal his fresh wounds.

Some time during Margaritas and gambling, Panzica met Chloe Scordianos, 21, of Long Island, NY, and “one thing led to another,” Panzica told KTNV.

They ended up together at the top of the High Roller, the Ferris wheel 550 feet above the Vegas strip, and went for it. Witnesses saw the two getting hot and heavy in the glass-enclosed cabin, security cameras captured it. People in another car shot cellphone video.

Security warned the couple to stop over the intercom but they kept going.

“We think it’s like a recording, because they kept saying it over and over again,” Panzica told KTNV.

About 30 minutes later, when they hit the ground, they were arrested. According to KTNV, Mistie Bozant bailed the man out after two nights in jail.

A Las Vegas judge on Tuesday set a March 9 date to see if the charges against Phillip Frank Panzica III and Chloe Scordianos can be resolved without trial.

“Doesn’t that show what a good heart I have,” she told the reporters.

Panzica said he felt bad about it. Panzica’s attorney, Bennair Bateman, declined comment. Images and video haven’t been made public.
