From the Willits News (March 12) in California:
A man detained for suspected arson may have problems other than an affinity for fire. According to police, the suspect has a substance abuse record that spans 14 years with 45 court cases pending. In October 2009, he was found asleep at another arson scene. This time police arrested him on suspicion of arson, probation violation and inhalation of a toluene substance.
The latter points to his dangerous habit of huffing paint thinner. When police found the 40-year old, he could not speak. He had passed out from inhaling gasoline fumes as suggested by the gas cup in his vehicle.
