Alabama Man Wrecks Vehicle After Suspected Huffing, Faces DUI Charge


A 23-year old man was arrested on suspicion of huffing after crashing into a telephone pole, continuing to drive, crossing opposite lanes of traffic, and ultimately crashing into woods off the road. Witnesses reported seeing the driver throw a small object from the car, which police determined to be a can of computer duster.

“About 5 feet from the vehicle, based on my training, I recognized a canister of compressed air that blows air on your keyboard,” the officer reported. “It’s not necessarily the air that gets you high, it's the propellant that’s used to propel it out of the canister.”The driver was discovered walking in the woods and given a field sobriety test, which led to his arrest for driving under the influence of inhalants.
