New Hampshire Man Arrested for Huffing, Assaulting Police Officer, and Resisting Arrest

"Police said a man was found "huffing" in his car sitting in a parking lot.
Wednesday afternoon, police responded to the parking lot of the Colonial Plaza in West Lebanon to find 26-year-old Christopher Auld passed out in his parked car. Police also saw several cans of the product "Dust Off" in the car with Auld when they tried to wake him.
Auld then grabbed one of the "Dust Off" cans and began to inhale the vapors. Police ordered him to stop, trying to take the can away from Auld, but he then slammed the door on the officer and continued to inhale the vapor.
Police struggled to arrest Auld, and called in for additional assistance. Once arrested, Auld was evaluated at the scene and charged with simple assault on a police officer and resisting arrest - both Class
A misdemeanors. He was also charged with inhaling toxic vapors for effect - a violation level offense.
Auld is being held at the Grafton County House of Corrections on $2,500 cash bail, and is expected to be arraigned Thursday."

Police Arrest Arkansas Woman Accused of Huffing Behind the Wheel

Police arrested a woman on suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants, despite her denying use of any intoxicants. 

"The arresting officer said she acted 'surprised and insulted' when he asked if she had been inhaling any sort of paint or air duster.
She denied having any type of inhalant in the vehicle and agreed to a search of the car, the report stated.
When she got out of the car Officer Joshua Beasley, who was also on the scene, said he 'noticed her shoving something up her shirt.'
Not sure if the 'large bulge' in her stomach area was a weapon or not, Beasley reportedly ordered her to place her hands on top of the car then grabbed the object hidden beneath her waistband.
“It was a can of air duster,” Beasley stated in the report.
He and Jackson both noted the can was empty and cold, indicating it had been recently used."
