Maine Man Found Unconscious on Riverbank After Huffing Paint

Via Central Maine:

Earlier this week, a bicycle rider noticed a man lying on the bank of the Kennebec River and after unsuccessfully trying to wake him, he called 911.  When they responded, police found a 20 year old male unconscious and intoxicated with empty alcohol containers near him and an empty paint can nearby. 

The first rescue scene on the scene called for additional manpower to assist in removing the man and he was transported to the hospital.  He is suspected of having huffed paint "which is illegal use of an inhalant and is a criminal offense."
