IOWA CITY — Cell phones are getting smaller, but not small enough to be mistaken for a $20 bill.

According to The Huffington Post, police found Deaaron Hearn, 22, passed out on a bench early Saturday morning.

Police say he smelled strongly of alcohol.

Police gave the man a breathalyzer test and took him into custody.
