Habitual Paint Huffer Jailed (Again)
The inhaling (or “huffing”) of solvents can cause hearing loss, limb spasms, cardiac arrest, damage to the central nervous system and even frostbite to the nose.
On the bright side, the practice does make for some of the greatest mug shots ever.
That’s Fort Wayne, Indiana man Kelly Gibson to your left, who since 1992 has been arrested a whopping 48 times for crimes related to his habitual huffing of paint fumes.
This time, Gibson was arrested after his obviously long-suffering wife called police to report that she had gotten into an argument with Gibson and was afraid to go back into their apartment.
When police entered the apartment, they found Gibson’s face and hands covered in paint, and noticed that his eyes were glassy — telltale signs of inhalant abuse.
He was arrested and charged with inhaling toxic vapors.
