LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Metro Police were called to a gas station on a type of bathroom emergency.
According to a police report, police responded to the Speedway convenience store in the 2300 block of Brownsboro Road after reports of a man lighting a toilet seat on fire.
Upon arrival police arrested James Crittenden, 36, who had been confronted by store personnel in the restroom. According to the written citation, Crittenden told store workers he lit the fire for religious reasons.
Crittenden was also arrested July 25, 2012 after police said he was huffing cans of a whipped cream product in the ValuMarket at Mid City Mall around 5:15 p.m.
Crittenden, 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.
