A naked man was found lying on the ground at Cumming home with a garage door resting on his back during an early-morning burglary call.

A Brands Hatch Boulevard resident called police Dec. 29, about 2:30 a.m., to report the naked man in her garage and when police arrived, said he was still in the garage and asked if she could open the door to let him out, according to the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office incident report.

The responding deputy ran to the right side of the home and spotted the man.

"I observed the naked buttocks and legs of a white male (lying) face down on the driveway," the deputy wrote in the report. "The garage door was open and resting on the back of the naked male just above his buttocks. I could see the rest of the male, from the bottom of the torso to the head in the garage of the residence, naked as well."

The officer drew his gun, ordered the man—later identified as Jonathan Bratkowski, 23—to show his hands and lifted the garage door. After he was handcuffed, police asked Bratkowski what he was doing, and he replied "he was not doing anything wrong," the report says.

Bratkowski smelled of alcohol, according to police.

"I asked (Bratkowski) why he was naked, stuck under the garage door with his buttocks exposed to public view, and he replied he was there to meet (a man who lives in the home), but it was nothing sexual," the report says.

Bratkowski, who lives at another Brand Hatch Boulevard home, said he had drank that day 12 ounces of one "Four Loko." Four Loko is a line of carbonated alcoholic drinks that contain much more than one serving of alcohol and before a Food and Drug Administration crackdown, included caffeine, according to the Associated Press.

The male resident of the home, 24, told police he awoke to find a fully-clothed Bratkowski in his bedroom, asked what he was doing there and pushed him out of the room.

The woman, 62, said Bratkowski probably entered through an unlocked kitchen door, but both residents told police he was not invited.

Police found black shorts belonging to Bratkowski in the garage and a white shirt in the driveway.

He was given a inmate uniform at the Forsyth County Detention Center, but a jail nurse said he needed to be medically cleared before housed.

Bratkowski was taken to Northside Hospital-Forsyth, where he tripped over a bed in an exam room and fell "front first to the floor," according to the report.

He was cleared by medical staff and jailed on charges of public drunkenness and public indecency.

The woman said she did not want to press charges against Bratkowski, but wanted him to stay off her property. She said she last saw him drunk in her front yard and that Bratkowski "has been escalating his behavior."

Lucky guy. If I wake up and you're standing in my bedroom, you don't get 'pushed out of the room'. You get 'carried out in a big rubber sack with extra holes in your dermis and lead-poisoned innards'.

The "naked" part of the story, especially in light of how cold it was at 2am, sounds like he might have been on that drug called bath salts.

This homeowner without an auto-reverse garage door function should be ashamed! This could have been a tiny kitten, a family dog, or a toddler. We should be thanking this naked, drunk and drug filled garage door lover. He has successfully exposed a very irresponsible garage door owner!

It's "drink," "drank," "had drunk."

Author is using "drunk" as an adjective, not a verb.

His actual name is Jonathan Bartkowski for the record.
