An Indiana lawyer who was found asleep headfirst in a neighbor's trash can after a night of drinking has apologized and says he's embarrassed.
No charges have been filed against Larry Wilder, who is the Jeffersonville City Council's attorney.
Wilder said he had dinner and drinks with friends in nearby Louisville, Ky., on Tuesday night. He said he was driven home in a client's limousine but remembers little that happened after that.
A neighbor found Wilder in the trash can early Wednesday and called police, who helped Wilder home.
Jeffersonville Police Chief Tim Deeringer said no crime was committed and that Wilder was cooperative and not a threat to anyone.
The City Council president said she will call a special meeting next week to discuss Wilder's status with the city.
