String of Huffing Arrests in Ohio

From The Review in Ohio:

The St. Clair Township Police have reported three separate huffing incidents in the past three weeks.

The first incident occurred when police received reports of a man behaving suspiciously after he drank something in a fast food restaurant bathroom. Police later learned that the man had been huffing from cans of brake cleaner. The man was charged with abusing harmful intoxicants.

In the second incident, police were told that a man was passed out in a parking lot. Police found the man with three cans of dust cleaner around him. The man resisted arrest, and police used a stun gun several times to subdue him.

For the third case, police found a man sitting in his car inhaling industrial strength dust spray. He was initially disoriented and unable to speak to the officers. He was charged with abusing harmful intoxicants.

The St. Clair Township police chief blames the poor economy for the recent huffing cases, saying that inhalants are cheaper than traditional drugs.
