WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP | Four arrests were made and a summons issued Saturday for public sex, spilling a beer on a police officer and public urination at the Porter County Expo Center, which hosted the Hoosier Fight Club.

An officer working security for Saturday's Hoosier Fight Club event was patrolling the parking lot and saw a man and woman having sex a Chevy Silverado pickup truck.

Police said Courtney Eickmann, 24, of Valparaiso, and Adam Walters, 26, of Valparaiso, were clearly visible by passers-by. Police said both were intoxicated and aware of the fact others could see them.

They were charged with public indecency and public intoxication.

Police said a Tinley Park woman was removed from the event when she did a chest bump with her friend, which caused her beer to fly out of her cup and land on an officer's head.

Police said Jill Bingenheimer, 35, was told to call a friend to get a ride home, but insisted on staying to watch a friend fight. Police said she became verbally abusive and refused to listen to officers, so she was arrested on a public intoxication charge.

A 42-year-old Plymouth man was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana. Police noticed several people in a car in the parking lot. When the officer went to investigate, he could smell burnt marijuana coming from the car. Dennis Clayton was arrested.

A 30-year-old St. John man, who was not arrested, was issued a summons to appear in court on public nudity charge after police said he began to urinate in the middle of the well-lit parking lot, in front a group of people who were outside the front door.

He told police he was "stupid" and didn't want to wait in line to use the men's room.
