Daniella Hirst isn’t like most of the rabble that come through these pages. She has not killed a child or a lover or swindled old people with dementia out of their Social Security. But she has launched an attack on public decency that now has her in hot water with Scarborough, England police.
Hirst and boyfriend Craig Smith shot to Internet fame after CCTV footage captured the pair getting it on in a Domino’s Pizza. Before going too far into condemnation territory, the couple didn’t realize they were actually doing it for an audience. In retrospect with this being the 21st Century and all, they probably should have. Also, if you think America has security cameras, visit Britain sometime. Omnipresent. Assume you’re being watched and Big Brother particularly likes sexual romps.
The 28-year-old woman, who acknowledges that she doesn’t “want to get into trouble,” was submitted to a 90-minute battery of questioning from police officers recently, according to a report from the Sun UK. Exposing yourself in public remains a crime in England. Probably most places where liquor is not served in mass quantities.
In comments to the press, Hirst onfessed that she and her boyfriend enjoy having sex in strange places. Domino’s isn’t super strange, though perhaps a blight on their health code report card. Not near the anchovies, please.
Of course, society needs its rules and regulations, but if the only “evidence” of wrongdoing is a video that will only be seen by an ambitious Domino’s pizza chain operator, have at it.
It’s hardly crime of the century. Nobody was there watching. Maybe we shouldn’t have done it but what’s done is done. I’ll take whatever consequences come my way, but I’d be shocked if this went as far as court.
In spite of all the unwanted attention, Hirst and Smith have taken their newfound fame in stride, posting a series of pretty hilarious pictures to social media making light of their “crime.” So there you go. Not exactly the worst girl in our Rogues’ Gallery, but we definitely would not suggest emulating her.
