You read right...this particular man was SENT TO JAIL because he showed up for work a couple of hours early to start his job.

What's his job? Garbage collector. Seems this particular Georgia town doesn't allow garbage pickup before 7am and this conscientious man wanted to get a head start a couple of hours earlier.

His reward? Thirty days in jail.

He decided to serve the thirty days but in increments of weekend days so he could still work weekdays to support his family.

There is an obvious outcry in that town against the judge that sentenced him, even though it was the citizens themselves who complained about the noise so early in the morning.

Do you think this guy should've been sentenced to jail?
