A brother and sister in the US state of Georgia were arrested and charged with committing incest in a church car park after watching popular romantic film The Notebook.
20-year-old Christopher Buckner and her 25-year-old brother, Tim Savoy, admitted to police that they had sex three times after watching the 2004 movie starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. The film depicts a young couple who fall in love during the 1940s.
Two police officers in Effingham County, 320 km (200 miles) from the state capital Atlanta, were responding to reports of prowling in the area when they caught the siblings in a tractor trailer in the car park of Country Side Baptist Church, across the road from South Effingham High School.
Officers soon learned that the two were related, WJCL News reported.
The pair were charged with incest, sodomy, and prowling according to sheriff office spokesman David Ehsanipoor.
