Pickleball, tennis, sex, and arrests. Two men were arrested in Hagen Park in Wilton Manors and accused of having sex acts in public.

Robert Kates, 54, and Brian Brooke, 61, are charged with lewd/lascivious exhibition where the accused is over 18 but the victim (or, in this case, a witness) is under 16.

“Upon arrival we came across a witness to this who pointed us in the direction of two individuals,” Wilton Manors Police Chief Gary Blocker told SFGN. “We encountered two individuals involved in a sexual act.”

Blocker said the two were busted on Oct. 20 at a time when the park is extremely busy.

“It was a time when we had a lot of [people using] our pickleball courts, our tennis courts over there,” he said. “That activity is not legal in that area.”

They were booked into the Broward County jail. During arraignment the judge set their bail at $500. As of Wednesday morning, jail records say both are still in custody.
