We all go a little mad sometimes.
A Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy is said to have been busted on-duty having sex with a woman near the Bates Motel section of the Universal Studios lot after mistakenly leaving his microphone on for a dispatcher to hear a all the details of the steamy session.
TMZ was first to post a clip of the carnal encounter between the yet-to-be-named deputy and his anonymous gal-pal close to the section of the park in Universal City dedicated to the classic Alfred Hitchcock film Psycho. It is unclear exactly when the incident took place.
“Oh,” the squealing woman is heard moaning on the recording. “Oh, my goodness!”
A female dispatcher then tips off the deputy that he was on an “open mic” as the woman continues to groan in what is presumed to be ecstasy while taking heavy breaths.
“95 Ocean, you have an open mic,” the dispatcher advises the deputy, who is unmoved as his partner carries on moaning on the recording. “95 Ocean, you have an open mic — take care of mic.”
The woman then goes silent as the minute-long clip concludes. The deputy does not reply to the dispatcher on the section of the recording provided by TMZ, and it is unknown if he was performing what sounded like a steamy act inside his patrol car or was on the grounds of the park outside his vehicle.
Universal Studios Hollywood is currently shut down and has been since March due to the ongoing global pandemic. The abandoned theme park appear to now be the perfect area for couples who desire a little more privacy.
If the pair were in fact getting it on in the park, they wouldn’t be the first. When Popsugar asked an anonymous former employee, “Did you ever catch guests having sex in the park?” They answered:
“Not me personally but before when Back to the Future was a ride there was a big tree by where Cleatus’ Chicken Shack is. People used to get caught having sex there more than most places. We get a lot of people who make out on the rides though, that’s not too uncommon.”
The former employee went on to reveal, “Everyone sleeps with everyone, the hiring staff will hire basically anyone who’s at least 18, so you get a bunch of really immature and horny people in the same building. It leads to a hell of a lot of drama.”
The deputy — who has not been named as of this time — has been withdrawn from his duties as an internal investigation transpires, department officials stated.
“The deputy was immediately relieved of duty and an administrative investigation has been opened,” sheriff’s officials said to The New York Post in a statement on Wednesday. “The deputy’s peace officer powers have been suspended and proper administrative action will be taken, based on the outcome of the investigation.”
A sheriff’s department spokesman did not give any additional information when the media reached out for comment, including how long the department has employed the deputy.
The Bates Motel is a fictitious location from the 1960 Alfred Hitchcock horror film Psycho. In the film’s story, the motel owner traps a woman in his hotel before peering at her undressing through a secret hole in the wall. He then murders her in the shower with a knife while dressed as his own mother.
The Universal Theme Park has locations in Los Angeles as well as Orlando, Fla. and has been in operation since July 15, 1964. The COVID-19 pandemic is the first time the park has been closed for a prolonged period of time, which has left it unguarded for couples to leave their own personal mark on the attractions.
