Arrested for Painkiller Substitute

Via Greenfield Patch in Wisconsin

Found outside a Target inhaling aerosol duster, a 22-year-old man was arrested and charged with abusing a hazardous substance. While in the booking room of the police station, the man “grabbed the can from an officer marking it for evidence and began running around the room and huffing the substance until they eventually caught him again.” He told police the duster served as a substitute for painkillers he was not able to obtain for his pancreatic pain. If convicted, he faces up to nine months in prison and $10,000 in fines.
