Teen Crashes Car After Huffing Air Duster

Jan 19, 2012

An 18-year-old from Syracuse is facing charges after police say he crashed his car while huffing a computer-cleaning air duster. He's being cited for driving under the influence of drugs, possession of a psychotoxic chemical, failure to wear a seatbelt, and failure to stop at a stop sign.

Syracuse detective Heath Rogers says that there has been a rise in abuse of air dusters, which consist of compressed gas usually used to clean debris from keyboards and other electronics.
