Police found an intoxicated man lying in a pile of recycling bins late one evening. Police realized the man’s shoes were missing as they woke him, and he appeared unsure of how he ended up in the pile of bins.

An officer found an intoxicated woman lying on the ground next to a vehicle parked in a roadway downtown.
