LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man was arrested Wednesday night after he was huffing cans of a whipped cream product in a Highlands supermarket.
Louisville Metro Police were called to ValuMarket at Mid City Mall around 5:15 p.m. on July 25 after store security saw James Nathan Crittenden opening cans of the Redi Whip and inhaling the nitrous oxide gas.
Crittenden, 36, who had been banned from the store in the past for disorderly conduct and theft, opened 10 cans of the product, which totaled $23.90. Crittenden told store personnel that he would pay for the opened cans, but only had $7.00 in his pocket.
The arrest report states Crittenden said he was huffing the cans to wake up and that the U.S. Constitution allowed him the authority to huff Redi Whip.
Crittenden was booked at Louisville Metro Corrections on charges of theft by unlawful taking, public intoxication under the influence of a controlled substance, disorderly conduct, and criminal trespassing.
