Martin County, Fl (treasurecoast.com)- The Martin County Sheriff arrested an impaired motorist charged with DUI after huffing cans of deodorant while behind the wheel.
31-year old Katherine Theodore was slow to tell deputies why she had mounds of empty Right Guard Deodorant cans in her car. Her demeanor during a traffic stop, however, gave deputies a better understanding of why her normal faculties were impaired. As the deputy made initial contact with Theodore, he could smell the strong scent of spray deodorant inside the car. When asked, Theodore said she sprayed the deodorant because she really likes the smell.
