They couldn't tear themselves apart

Published May 26, 2007

One couple's passionate interlude came to an end, quite literally, at the hands of the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office.

Deputies arrested Richard J. Augat, 26, and Denise J. Mignone, 44, early Friday on charges of disorderly intoxication and lewd and lascivious behavior. Someone spotted the couple getting busy in plain view outside the LA Hangout at 16411 N Florida Avenue in Tampa. The couple didn't stop, even when deputies arrived. Two deputies had to, um, pull them apart, said sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter.

Both spent the rest of the night in jail on $500 bail.
