    On February 11, 2015 at 5:02 a.m., a garbage truck worker (Progressive Waste Solutions) was running his route when he heard yelling and banging coming from the back end of his truck. When the driver pulled over, he found a male and a female in the back end of the garbage truck and he could not get them out. Units responded, along with EMS, and got the two subjects out of the truck. The units discovered that the male and female were sleeping inside the dumpster at the WaWa at Orient and Hillsborough when the dumpster was emptied and they were thrown into the back of the truck. There are no visible signs to either party, but both were transported to TGH complaining of back pain. It was originally believed that they were homeless, but it seems they were just really intoxicated. When deputies made contact with the male, he smelled of alcohol, was slurring his speech and was aggressive towards law enforcement. The male stated that they were visiting from Kissimmee and had been hanging out at the casino, but deputies were unable to confirm that information.
