Orland Park, IL. – Police say that a couple couldn't wait to get home to get it on. 

Orland Park police reported that the man and his date turned a cab ride from Rosemont, Illinois, into a sex-capade—then told the driver they couldn't cough up the $83 fare.

Officers dealing with the Feb. 9 incident said the two were intoxicated and incoherent, scrambling to collect clothes tossed about the cab. 

With police hovering, the 27-year-old man turned over his mother's credit card to cover the fare—and his 31-year-old date from Elgin was left to fend for herself in getting home. 

Authorities said they took her to the police station, where a family member picked her up.

No charges were filed.

Gee, I didn't know IL was in NJ. I guess I have to recalibrate my local meter.

Please keep commack patch to commack news or the very close surrounding areas

This would have been funnier if the couple had been teenagers!

Ray, if you had read to the end of the article, you would have learned that they're showcasing popular stories from across Patch's network of 900 local sites. So recalibrating won't help...

I'm a bit surprised that they allowed him to use his mother's credit card, since that's not his to use. I'm also doubtful that she would've wanted to pay for a, er... Spiced up cab ride anyway.

Brian, nobody cares... even if it did happen locally...which it did NOT ! When I want to hear national slime news I'll turn on channel 7.

I heard someone did it in an elevator once too. Why don't you write about that one?

Is this "Sexcapades Week" on Patch? First it's "Two Guys, 1 Cow" and now it's this. I gotta ask, again, what's the focus around here, aside from the obvious (get clicks anyway you can)?

I agree with Bob! Seems like the Patch wants to be the local TMZ. If you are looking for local information for Horsham you should check out Horsham Chats. https://www.facebook.com/HorshamChATs or www.horshamchats.com

Patch should use Zip code tagging like the weather channels do to target appropriate areas.

Why is this in the Rye Patch if it happened in IL?
Bob McBride February 26, 2014 at 01:05 PM
Karen, "local" has been redefined by TPTB at Patch. If an article originates on one of their community sites and they choose to spam it across the system, they still consider it local content, since it was local to the site where it originated.

This is not "news" worthy of my time. Nor was the story about sex with a cow. No more Patch news for me.
Kniqui Hackborn February 26, 2014 at 01:28 PM
I miss our patch editor Claudia. She was interactive and patch was local. Now I get the same local stuff for three Days or non local stuff. I miss the local community.

a 27 yr old and a 31 yr old can't come up with $90? Obviously democrats.
FedUpRealist February 26, 2014 at 05:23 PM
you mean dumbercrats, don't you???
tom Thomas February 26, 2014 at 08:04 PM
Come On Patch, you are really bottom feeding with articles like this!!!!! What are you trying to be, the National Inquirer?
Michele February 26, 2014 at 09:34 PM
Funny story!
Adriana February 27, 2014 at 06:45 AM
Patch is pretty worthless, i understand they were recently sold. It appears the $numbers didn't work for the original business model, hence the watered daown Non-local pathetic jumble of sensational trash from all over.
Daniella Ruiz February 27, 2014 at 07:57 AM
those seeking local dirt to bandy about, need only open the door, go out, and walk to your nearest bar, club or homeless shelter. this isn't anything unusual, as is most of the entertaining behavior of humanity. the Patch is only doing what the other 'pay subscription' sites offer, but for free. the only real cost is how they sample your comments and then sell those statistics and evaluate the degradation of american ideals, based on our comments. keep watching, sex sells and you bought it!

It's all George Bush's Fault!!!!!!
Vanessa February 27, 2014 at 04:18 PM
These news stories are rediculous. I really don't care what two stupid people did in the back of a cab or with a cow! Where is the real news.
FedUpRealist February 28, 2014 at 02:48 PM
There is LOTS of news out there...It's just that the LIBERAL media (CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, CNN, ABC, NPR, PBS, et al...)won't cover it because it's mostly bad news for Obama and the dumbercrats...All you hate filled libs should actually watch a little of FOX NEWS instead of bashing it without ever having watched it...Ever wonder why FOX blows away ALL the Lib outlets combined????
