Man goes shopping and abuses over-the-counter chemicals
An Orion Township resident is banned from Menards after inhaling chemicals in the store and then denying he had a problem.
Deputies went to Menards, 465 Brown Rd., at 10:14 p.m. April 18 for a report of a man who was inhaling chemical agents in and around the store.
Deputies found the 37-year-old at the corner of the store and observed him with a can of Blow-Off Duster to his face – he was actively inhaling the over-the-counter chemical agents.
Deputies immediately requested STAR EMS to come to the store and check the man’s medical condition because the warning labels on the can said it could cause severe harm to humans if the product is ingested.
Deputies determined that the man inhaled approximately one-and-a-half cans of chemicals, and that he has been at the store several times in the last couple of days.
The man was cleared by STAR EMS as alert and conscious. The man also refused any medical help and denied he had a substance abuse problem.
