Drain and replace the gas with fresh.
Remove the air cleaner and spray carb cleaner into the inlet. Work your throttle a little then put everything back together and try to start it.

Sounds like the carb has over flowed and filled the crankcase with gas.
You will need to drain the oil, and re-fill it with new oil at the proper amount. Also replace the oil filter.
Clean the air filter and replace the spark plug.
Clean the carb, making sure the float and float needle are functioning properly.
That should fix you up!
