I’ve seen a lot of weirdness at concerts in my day, but this one transcends pretty much all of them.
Lisanne Beck, a 47 year-old woman from Wales, was with her boyfriend, Simon Murphy, 48, at a BBC Radio 2 concert in Hyde Park in London when Simon got bored. He didn’t seem to be much into Paloma Faith’s set, so she decided to, um, administer some oral resuscitation in front of everyone. From the Daily Mail:
The court heard how Mr Murphy appeared to be lying on his side when Ms Beck, an events manager, ‘leaned over him and undid his shorts’.
In the footage, Beck could then be seen moving her head towards Murphy, who was dressed in a purple T-shirt and khaki shorts. Describing what had happened, Mr Holden said: ‘It came to our attention that the lady seemed to be what appeared to be in a drunken manner trying to undo the gentleman’s shorts.
‘It became apparent she seemed to be undoing the gentleman’s shorts and trying to release the button fly on the shorts.’ Mr Holden told jurors that Murphy was exposed during the alleged act.
In among screams of “What about the children?” a number of people pulled out the mobiles and caught the procedure on video. Some of that video was passed on to police who then charged the couple with indecency.
They claim they were framed and this is a case of mistaken identity. And besides, says Beck, this is something that she’d only perform in a bedroom.
The trial continues.
