A South Carolina couple faces criminal charges after police say they were having sex inside a Myrtle Beach attraction.
On Jan. 12, Myrtle Beach police opened an indecent exposure investigation regarding an incident that happened at 1110 N. Ocean Blvd., according to arrest warrants. That address is the same as the SkyWheel, one of the area’s top oceanfront spots.
In an online video, Eric Harmon, of Lexington, and Lori Harmon, of Garden City, were inside a glass gondola that was in public view, according to the warrants.
While inside the car, the two performed a sex act, the warrants state.
SkyWheel officials were quick to say they were not aware of the incident and that it does not tolerate that behavior at their attractions.
“SkyWheel Myrtle Beach prides ourselves in providing a safe, family friendly attraction and atmosphere,” officials said in a statement. “This incident that we are just becoming aware of is extremely disturbing. We have not been notified yet from the authorities regarding this incident, but are ready to cooperate in any way we can. These actions do not reflect our values, and we do not tolerate any behavior that does not coincide with our family friendly environment.”
The couple—who are both 36 years old—were arrested on Saturday, according to Myrtle Beach police records. They each face up to three years in prison on the charge.
The Harmons also have a slew of charges in Horry County for similar activities. Horry County police charged Lori Harmon with two counts of indecent exposure, two counts of participation in obscene material, property damage less than $2,000. Officers charged Eric Harmon with indecent exposure and two counts of participation in obscene material.
In a December 2020 incident, Horry County police say the couple had sex in a development’s community pool. They then posted a video of it on several adult websites, according to arrest warrants.
In the same incident, Lori Harmon is also accused of urinating on two vending machines, the warrants state.
Also in December in Murrells Inlet, the couple produced a video where Lori Harmon exposed herself and urinated in a public elevator, according to the warrants. She then laid down on North Waccamaw Drive and exposed herself. The duo then went to a third location and had sex.
That video was also uploaded to an adult website, the warrants state.
