For 25 biking Pennsylvania cops and one lovesick couple, a day in the park Tuesday is one that they won't soon forget, try as they might.
The officers were taking part in Upper Darby Police Department’s 'bicycle school' Tuesday afternoon in Naylor's Run Park when they stumbled upon Jennifer Harvey, 41, and Richard McBride, 37, having sex on a park bench near the baseball diamond in the middle of the day.
According to police, both lovers were partially naked and completely out in the open, but there was no one else around to see them.

Harvey, of Clifton Heights, and McBride, of North Philadelphia, were both charged with lewdness and disorderly conduct.
What started out as a peaceful ride in the park for 25 police officers from various departments taking part in an annual five-day training program ended with the arrest of the hapless lovers who just could not wait to get indoors.
At around 4pm Tuesday, cops on bikes were wrapping up their exercises for the day when they made their way to the baseball field after passing by children on swings and people on the tennis courts.
That is when the unsuspecting officers encountered a scene that likely has been seared into the brain of each and every one of them.
'There they are, on the first base line,' Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood told Philly.com. 'There's a bench, she is bent over the bench and our friend is behind her with his pants down to his ankle, banging away.'
Chitwood added that it was a hot day with temperatures in the 90s, and there was luckily no one around to witness the outdoor exploits of the kinky paramours. However, as Harvey and McBride were being arrested, a teenager did pass through the area.

‘Imagine being arrested by 25 cops,’ Chitwood said. ’They were as shocked as the police were.’
Police are not sure if the star-crossed lovers are in a relationship, but they do not suspect prostitution.
The police superintendent quipped that the true victims of this unseemly episode were the officers who were unfortunate enough to catch the lovebirds in the act.
‘These officers go on a tour of Upper Darby to see the sites and neighborhood and instead get taken to sex incorporated,’ Chitwood lamented.
