Man Arrested Five Times For Inhalant Abuse

From The Muncie Star Press:

An Indiana man was recently arrested for "glue sniffing". Under Indiana's anti-inhalant statute, the inhalation of any substance is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 180 days in jail. However, it is not the State's statutory awareness that makes this case unusual.

The man in question has been arrested five times for the same offense. Since 2000, the man's affinity to carburetor cleaner, which contains the intoxicant toluene, have resulted in the arrests. Ostensibly, an arrest last November happened after the man pushed down his then-girlfriend when confronted him about the habit.

The 30-year old is now awaiting his Monday hearing and ensuing trial in June.
