Minnesota Man Huffing and Driving Crashes into Another Vehicle

Via twincities.com

A 26-year-old Minnesota man was charged with third-degree operating a motor vehicle under the influence, reckless driving, careless driving and two counts of criminal vehicular operation after huffing and driving.

Officers responded to a call of a head on collision.  The man driving was incoherent. Once coherent, he denied taking medications or drinking alcohol and he consented to a search of his car, "with the caveat that officers might find aerosol cans because he was 'huffing' the night before."

Officers found a partially empty aerosol can that had condensation and was cold to touch, meaning it had recently been used.  In a statement to officers, the man said he took six to seven hits from the can while driving to work.  The woman in the car he hit was taken to the hospital for back injuries.

A 27-year-old Oklahoma man was arrested for physical control of a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs and theft of a vehicle.

Police found the man passed out inside of a vehicle that he had pulled into a driveway.  Medics reported that when they arrived at the scene the man had a can of computer duster spray up to his mouth.   When medics asked the man to stop huffing and turn the truck off, the man allegedly continued to huff the duster until the can was empty and then attempted to put the truck in reverse and leave.  Medics intervened and turned the truck off, which made the man agitated and aggressive. The man held his car door closed until authorities arrived.

The man admitted that he had been huffing duster.  Six cans of dusters were recovered from the car.  After the man was arrested, police received information that the vehicle the man was in was reported stolen.
