On the night of Tuesday September 1st, a woman in West Monroe, Louisiana was found unconscious in her car by an Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s deputy. The officer approached the vehicle because it was blocking traffic. However, when he saw that the driver was unconscious and shaking, he forced entry into the car and called emergency responders.
Once the woman, who had an aerosol can in her hand and eleven more in the car, was deemed to be in stable condition by medical professionals, she was arrested and taken to Ouachita Correctional Center. From there she was charged with abusing of toxic vapors and impeding the flow of traffic.
Incidentally, this was not the first time this woman had faced similar charges. A year earlier, she was found abusing inhalants in a car and was in almost equally poor condition.
