A Michigan couple was arrested for 2nd degree child abuse after huffing dusters in a Walmart parking lot with their 3-year-old daughter in the car. The couple, 29 and 27 years old, were huffing computer duster spray in their car when they passed out. Shoppers reported to management that a couple was passed out in a running car in the parking lot. A police officer was already inside the Walmart on a shoplifting inquiry when he was notified of the car. When he approached the car he noticed the two adults were, "hunched over and passed out".
The police officer waited for help before attempting to enter the vehicle, as it is dangerous to wake someone who has been huffing. The couple said they had been huffing because of the "rough day" they were experiencing. Their 3-year-old daughter was in the back seat awake, happy and healthy.
