Lawyer found in trash can quits public jobs

JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. (AP) - An Indiana lawyer who was found
asleep headfirst in a neighbor's trash can after a night of
drinking has resigned as the Jeffersonville City Council's

Larry Wilder says he also has told the Greater Clark County
School Board that he won't seek to renew his annual contract when
it expires Tuesday.

A neighbor found Wilder in the trash can early June 17 and
called police, who helped Wilder home.

Wilder said he had dinner and drinks with friends in nearby
Louisville, Ky., the night before but was driven home in a client's
limousine and remembers little of what happened after that.

Police said no crime was committed and did not charge Wilder.
