Impromptu, X-rated Theater @ Charlotte Mecklenburg's ImaginOn
Couple caught having sex at ImaginOn. (Charlotte Observer, 4/13/2011)
Excerpt: A couple was caught having sex at a children’s library on Tuesday.
ImaginOn is a library and a children's theater. Hundreds of children visit the venue every day.
Police say a 20-year-old man and 18-year-old woman were caught having sex in the teen lounge around 3 p.m. Tuesday. The lounge is not walled off and there isn’t anything to keep kids from walking into the area. Fortunately, there were not any children in that area when the incident happened.
“That’s disgusting,” says parent Camisha Lewis. “That’s really nasty. I wouldn’t want my child to see that.”
Officials with ImaginOn responded to questions about the incident with a brief email response.
"First, no children or members of the public witnessed the incident – the only witnesses were a Mecklenburg County Security officer and a Library staff member. The incident was discovered by the security officer as part of a regular patrol, and was handled quickly, appropriately and professionally in accordance with security procedures.
The couple has been banned from all Charlotte Mecklenburg libraries, though the article does not state for how long.
