Georgia Man Found Unconscious After Huffing

 Via Cumming Patch

 A 22 year-old Georgia man was arrested after being found lying unconscious in the woods.

The man was reported to have been lying in a parking lot when police were called.  The man allegedly began fighting with an off-duty officer before running off into the woods.  He was lying on his back in the woods when on-duty officers arrived and walked into the woods to follow him.  According to police the man, "was unresponsive and (his) eyes were rolled to the back of his head."  The man had a can of dusting spray in his hand.  As the police removed the can from his hand he became responsive.  He was able to walk with the police, but was unaware of what was going on.

Earlier in the day, the man had been suspected of shoplifting at Walmart and Target and had been escorted to the hospital due to huffing aerosol products from the stores.  The man refused medical attention during the second arrest.  He was issued a criminal trespass warning, arrested, and jailed on charges of loitering and public drunkenness.
