Joshua D. Frank, who had been living on the Latah County Fairgrounds, pleaded guilty Monday to a misdemeanor charge of failing to notify a police officer of a traffic accident. He was fined $188.
Frank told Moscow police he was driving near downtown early Saturday while a man and woman were having sex in the rear of the vehicle. According to a probable cause affidavit, he said the movement caused the SUV to become "tippy" and he lost control of it.

Moscow. Carnival workers. Sex in a moving vehicle. Three great ingredients for a story. We’re picturing a car chase going by the Kremlin with James Bond sexing up a gypsy woman as he switches gears in his Astin Martin. Nyet. It was in Idaho. And some dude’s friends were copulating in the backseat. He bumped into a telephone pole because his friends wild bucking and thrashing got his SUV all loose-y goose-y. We’re guessing that his eyes were squarely on his rearview instead of the road. It could have been worse. NBA player Eddie Griffin once got in a car wreck while beating off to a porn DVD while driving his Escalade in a grocery store parking lot. His fine was $375 or double what Joshua Frank paid. That sounds about right.
