(Scroll down for video) Police were called after a couple was seen having sex in a Ferris wheel car.
The tourists were having a good time in Nevada, when they decided to have sex in the 550 foot observation Ferris wheel in Las Vegas.
27-year-old Philip Frank Panzica III of Houston, Texas, and Chloe Scordianos, 21, of Hicksville, New York, were the only passengers in car 16 of the High Roller observation wheel, which can accommodate up to 40 people.
A security guard noticed the pair smoking cigarettes and undressing. Both acts are prohibited inside the car.
Guests in cabin 15 said that they took videos of the pair engaging in sex acts. Workers used an intercom to ask passengers to put out the cigarettes and put on their clothes.
The couple briefly did as they were told, but soon resumed the prohibited activities. That is when the police were called.
Panzica and Scordianos were arrested at the end of the 30 minute trip.
The suspects were arrested on felony charges of committing a sexual act in public. They were later released on bail.
Investigators did not reveal whether the two suspects, who are from different states, knew each other before their encounter.
