TRIADELPHIA, WV (KDKA/CNN) – A couple in West Virginia could face charges after taking their sex games out their bedroom and onto the street.
The couple was spotted at a busy four-way intersection on U.S. 40, a national road, at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
A naked man was seen down on all fours, ankles bound, and a hood over his head being walked on a leash by a woman wearing a purple nightgown.
"That was the weirdest day yet - yep - I hope it the weirdest day ever," Ohio County, WV Sheriff’s office Lt. Nelson Croft said.
After several passersby took cell phone pictures, tips led to an apartment building and the couple inside.
"The female at first denied any involvement. We had a witness positively identify her, and then she admitted it, as did the male," Croft said.
The woman is identified as Barbara Jean “B.J.” Geardello, 53, and her 56-year-old boyfriend Robert Deyell. Both are originally from Pennsylvania.
“They said it was consensual sex, a consensual sex game and they were offended that people were stopping and calling them freaks,” Croft said.
“I was like, ‘Oh, my God! He’s naked and she’s walking a human being,” neighbor Cindy Hunter said.
Deyell, who told deputies he was a willing participant, was not seriously injured.
"Except for ligature marks, obvious ligature marks on his feet and ankles. Other than that, he denied any injury," Croft said.
Neither Geardello nor Deyell has been charged yet. The district attorney is mulling over the possibilities, which could most likely be indecent exposure.
