A woman has been placed under arrest and charged with driving on a suspended license after she ‘huffed” chemicals from an aerosol can in front of Del Ray police.
According to Del Ray police records, Cheyenne Wall, 24, of West Palm Beach, crashed her Acura Integra into a cement pole. Witnesses at the scene said they saw Wall slumped over the steering wheel of the vehicle when it crashed into the pole.
Wall told police she didn’t know how the crash took place. She also claimed being tired after having been up the previous night after being evicted from a recovery house in Latana.
Police did a background check on Wall and found that her Indiana driver’s license was currently suspended. Police had Wall’s vehicle towed from the scene and impounded.
Officers were writing a traffic citation for Wall and she had been instructed to sit on the sidewalk. The officer heard a loud hissing noise and found Wall laid out on the sidewalk with a can of computer dusting solvent in her hand.
The canned solvent is used to clean computers and computer parts and is readily available at office supply and box stores. Drug abusers will often use the solvent as a means to get high in a process referred to as “huffing”.
After huffing the solvent, Wall, the officer found her incoherent and her pupils were constricted. She is currently facing charges of both driving on a suspended license and inhaling or ingesting harmful chemicals.
Authorities have released Wall on her own recognizance.
Thankfully, in this accident, no one was seriously injured. Driving under the influence does not only mean driving under the influence of alcohol. It can also apply for someone who gets behind the wheel when they are under the influence of illegal drugs, or even legal or prescription drugs.
