Authorities are mulling whether to charge a couple for a "consensual sex game" in West Virginia that startled many witnesses.
The sight of a man wearing only a hood on his head and crawling on all fours as a nightgown-wearing woman led him down the street on a leash prompted witnesses to call police on July 29.
The man's feet were also bound and apparently an unidentified object protruded from his anus, according to a police report obtained by the Smoking Gun.
It was "the weirdest day ever," Ohio County Sheriff's Lt. Nelson Croft said.
After searching the area around the busy intersection in Wheeling where the fetishistic couple was seen, deputies identified Barbara Jean “B.J.” Geardello, 53 and her boyfriend Robert Deyell, 56, as the exhibitionists.
Deyell bore ligature marks on his ankles, but complained of no injures.
“They said it was consensual sex, a consensual sex game," Croft told CBS Pittsburgh.
And, in fact, the couple had a complaint of their own to share with authorities.
"They were offended that people were stopping and calling them freaks," Croft said.
The district attorney is reportedly reviewing the case and considering whether or not to file a charge of indecent exposure.
