PERKINS TWP.

Perkins Police arrested a man for allegedly huffing from an aerosol can.

Police were called to the Wal-Mart parking lot for the report of a man “huffing” an aerosol can. Officer Ed Hastings located the man by some donation bins in the western part of the parking lot, rocking back and forth, disoriented and his face bright red. A can of CleanSafe pressurized cleaner was found at his feet.

Police said the man at first denied huffing, but later admitted he sucked air from the can because he’d had a stressful day at work “and this was an easy way to make the stress go away.”
