PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A drunken man who fell asleep in a dumpster nearly got compacted after he was picked up by garbage collectors Friday morning.

Portland police spokesman Lt. Robert King reports that the man, 27-year-old Justin Gilpatrick, had been drinking at a nightclub late Thursday.

After allegedly deciding that he was too intoxicated to drive home, Gilpatrick climbed into a cardboard recycling container outside the club to sleep it off.

On Friday morning, unknowing Waste Management crews picked him up and dumped him into a garbage truck along with the recycling. According to King, the truck was compacted twice before the workers noticed him inside.

Gilpatrick was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital with minor injuries. He will not face charges, Portland police said.
