Published 10:58am Tuesday, September 17, 2013

A 37-year-old Fergus Falls man was arrested for a third time in a month for huffing, according to police.

Officers were called to an apartment building in the 200 block of North Sheridan Street at 8 p.m. Monday, and the man huffed propane in front of police. Police could smell the propane from the hallways and even outside the building.

The man was taken to Lake Region Healthcare, medically released and then booked at the Otter Tail County Detention Center for abusing a toxic substance. The woman who called police was also treated and cleared from the hospital.

Fire and rescue crews also responded to check on the building.

    Seems that all his important brain cells have been wiped out due to his poor choices. Hope he gets the help he needs, but it seems that at this point he doesn’t get it.

      Guess I should clarify…he doesn’t seem to be wanting to get help, even though I’m sure it has been offered to him.

    Maybe he thinks he’s the big bad wolf.
