A man allegedly caught having se x on a big wheel in Las Vegas was due to marry a DIFFERENT woman later that day, he has claimed.
Philip Frank Panzica was arrested after allegedly stripping off and performing a se x act in front of shocked tourists on the popular attraction.
The 27-year-old and Chloe Scordianos, 21, appeared before a court last week after being hauled off the 550ft High Roller big wheel on the Las Vegas strip.
But now Panzica has reportedly revealed he was due to marry fiancée Mistie Bozant – until he discovered she was pregnant with another man’s baby.
He told the New York Daily News: “I really do appreciate it and I feel bad about everything.
“The thing that hurts me the most is her kids. I love her babies.”
Stunned customers say they saw the pair na ked and romping on the floor of one of the attraction’s glass pods.
The pair were warned via an intercom system when tourists and staff noticed them stripping off and smoking on board the observation wheel.
But security officers say despite the warning they continued to romp on the floor of the 30-minute ride before being arrested at the end by police.
Arresting officers wrote in their report: “They both said they were just having a good time and didn’t think anyone would notice.”
Officers added CCTV footage, “clearly showed Scordianos laying on her back in the center of the cabin.
“Panzica was on his knees over Scordianos and removed her dress.
“He also removed his clothes while standing up, exposing his penis and bare buttocks, allowing anyone in public to see.”
The pair have since appeared in court charged with committing se x acts in public.
Scordianos denied the offence and added individuals should have an expectation of privacy on the High Roller.
The pair are expected back in court next month.
The High Roller, part of the Linq Hotel has stepped up security following a series of public indecency incidents in recent months.
