Thomas J. Bruno allegedly agreed to pay a male prostitute to have sex with him near a wastewater treatment plant off Wolfe Neck Road. But the two, who had met in a bar earlier that night, got into an argument and the sex act never took place, he told police.
Bruno got lost while trying to leave the area, so he called 911 with his cell phone about 4 a.m. ... At the time he lost contact, he reportedly had lost his shoes in mud.
When troopers found him nearly four hours later, he was stuck in mud up to his waist. Police used night-vision goggles to locate his vehicle, then followed his footprints about two miles to where he was stuck.
