DG)--An unidentified man was arrested on multiple complaints after Enid Police Department officers responded to a report of a possibly intoxicated man trapped inside of a garbage truck at McDonalds, on West Garriott early today. According to police, the driver of the truck told officers the man, whose identity is not known, climbed the ladder on the side of the truck and jumped inside around 4:45 this morning. Authorities said the back half of the truck was full and could not be opened without endangering the man inside, so officers called the Enid Fire Department and asked to borrow a ladder to help get the man out of the truck. The ladder was placed inside the truck, and after a difficult time climbing the ladder, the man eventually got onto the roof of the vehicle. Officers detained him on the roof so he would not fall or have a chance to be combative, the report said, and after thinking about the best and safest way to get him down from the truck, the fire truck's bucket was used to bring the man down to the ground where he was placed into a police car. The man denied any medical treatment and was booked into Garfield County Detention Facility as "John Doe" on complaints of public intoxication and obstruction. Another complaint of bringing contraband into the jail was added after officers said they found a bag of marijuana inside one of the man's socks.
