Indiana Man Arrested 48 Times for Huffing Paint

In Fort Wayne, Indiana this past week a man was arrested for huffing spray paint for the 48th time; the first incident was in 1992.

Kelley Gibson got into an argument with his wife, Elizabeth Gibson, and went upstairs in a huff to inhale the the toxic fumes, according to authorities.

After Mrs. Gibson called the police, they arrived to find the apartment reeking of fumes. Mr. Gibson was shirtless and held a plastic bag covered in paint in his left hand and the can of paint in his right. His face was also covered with the silver paint. The police took him to jail on charges of inhaling toxic vapors.

Note: the only funny thing about this story is the mug shot, and huffing seems like probably one of the saddest things out there. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
