A Florida man was arrested after authorities reportedly found him drunk and naked inside a garbage can. Wyly James Weeks, 35, was taken into custody after he tried arguing with cops about whether he was allowed to engage in such bizarre behaviors, according to arrest records obtained by The Smoking Gun.

St. Petersburg police officers allege Weeks was intoxicated, unsteady on his feet, and reeked of alcohol when they discovered him on a downtown street Saturday evening (April 6).

During the encounter, Weeks claimed he couldn't be arrested because he “was allowed to be drunk and disorderly and sit naked in a trash can on the public sidewalk,” the arrest affidavit reads. The 35-year-old also said he didn't have to tell police his “name or demographics.”

After officers pulled the nude man from the corner trash can, they arrested Weeks for disorderly intoxication and resisting an officer without violence. According to reporters, he pleaded guilty to both misdemeanor charges the next day and was fined $520.

This wasn't the only time Weeks was caught on a drunken escapade. The Smoking Gun reports Weeks and a male friend were spotted drunk and naked on a Tampa street after they left a bar. They allegedly told cops they thought it would be funny to take off their clothes.
