Indiana Man Says Mea Culpa On Huffing Charge

From The Star Press (June 28):

An Indiana man has entered a guilty plea on his fourth inhalant abuse charge and sixth known offense. In 2001, the man was arrested on three separate occasions for misusing products to get high. His futile attempt to flee authorities earned him a punitive resisting arrest charge.

This time, the 30-year old was found huffing carburetor cleaner in his apartment bathroom. Reports says the man filled a sock with the intoxicant and proceeded to inhale the fumes. He was arrested for inhaling intoxicating vapors and, following his guilty plea, sentenced to 180 days in jail. The report did not indicate who alerted authorities to the man's drug abuse.
