Nebraska 'Duster' Gets Busted

From the Lincoln Journal Star in Lincoln, Nebraska

A 31 year old man from Talmage, Nebraska plead guilty to misdemeanor charges of 'inhaling a toxic substance' after he was found ‘huffing’ in a hospital parking garage Monday morning. A hospital guard, (who was also an off duty police officer) was informed of the suspect’s suspicious activities from a passerby who grew concerned after witnessing “a man in a white car” twitch uncontrollably.

The suspect was discovered “slumped over in the front seat of his Chevrolet Lumina on the first floor ramp with a can of dust remover in his hands.” He told the guard that he was visiting a relative in the hospital and had managed to slip away for a few short hours. However, the suspect later admitted to police that during this time he inhaled two full cans of duster; inevitably causing him to pass out and shake uncontrollably. Following the incident, the suspect was jailed on “suspicion of unlawful use of toxic compounds,” and will face additional criminal charges and fines spurring his guilty plea earlier this week.
