JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Jonesboro police officer arrested a couple Friday after reportedly discovering them coupling in a man’s backyard.

At 6:44 p.m. Officer Christopher Jefferson responded to a call of “obscene behavior” in the 1800-block of East Johnson.

According to the initial incident report, the caller said a man and a woman were “having sex behind his apartment building next to a privacy fence.”

When Jefferson arrived at the scene he reported finding Shawn Price, 35, “naked on top of” Kellie Underwood, 38.

Underwood’s pants were off, according to the report, and Price was “actively sexually humping” her.

Jefferson said Underwood “quickly got up and put his clothes on when he saw me approaching.”

The officer arrested the couple and conducted a search of their property and persons.

While searching Underwood, Jefferson reported finding a cigarette box containing three marijuana joints and a small marijuana bud. During a search of Price’s property, the officer said he found a small plastic baggie containing suspected marijuana.

Jefferson took the pair to the Craighead County Detention Center and charged them with public sexual indecency.
