An Arab expatriate who works in Saudi Arabia will spend the next six months in jail, after he was caught kissing a girl in his car.

But before he goes to jail though, he must receive 240 lashes of the cane for the audacity of kissing in public.

According to Emirate247, operatives of the Royal Kingdom's Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, arrested the man after catching him kissing the girl inside his car on the seaside in the eastern port of Dammam.

Aside the punishment, the police also recommended the deportation of the man to avert his evil doings in the future, but the court did not order his deportation.
