When William M. Bowen, aged 27, awoke in the back of a garbage truck after a night of binge drinking, we hope he took it as a sign had a problem. We're no angels here and everybody has had their embarrassing alcohol-induced situations, but waking up in the compactor buried in garbage is beyond the pale. The man claimed to have been drinking with friends until around 3 AM at End Zone Sports Bar in Muncie, Indiana. Muncie, if you didn't know, is the home of Ball State University, one of the most notorious boozing schools year after year. Perhaps our boy Billy was just trying to recapture the magic of college, or maybe he's one of those 9th year seniors—both seem plausible. [The Palladium-Item]
