LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A half-naked woman was found huffing hairspray inside a restroom at a Louisville drugstore early Friday morning, according to police.

An officer said Shurki A. Sheikh-Hussein, 25, was seated on the floor inside a locked restroom stall at the Walgreens at 5201 S. 3rd Street, nude from the waist up, and continuing to inhale hairspray from a cloth.

An arrest report states Sheikh-Hussein ignored commands from officers to exit the stall, was unsteady on her feet, had severely slurred speech and smelled strongly of hairspray.

Witnesses told police Sheikh-Hussein had stolen two cans of hairspray from the store as well as the clothing she was using to inhale the hairspray. There was no word on what happened to her shirt.

Sheihk-Hussein is charged with public intoxication and shoplifting.
