A 48-year-old man was arrested for allegedly huffing compressed air while driving after crashing his Mercedes C300 into a wooden fence Friday.
Frederick J. Wunker, of the 3100 block of Huntington Woods Drive, also was cited for improper lane use and failure to notify the owner of the fence, according to police.
Police were called to the intersection of Washington Street and Veterans Parkway, where a crash had happened about 10:50 p.m. When they arrived, officers discovered a large hole in a wooden fence just west of the intersection.
An officer followed a trail of broken auto parts on Washington Street to Wunker’s address, police said. Wunker answered the door and had a cut above his right eye.
He admitted to crashing his vehicle and said he couldn’t remember running into the fence, police said. He claimed he blacked out at that time.
The officer noticed four cans of compressed air on Wunker’s couch, police said. Two were covered in frost, meaning someone likely had just used them.
Wunker allegedly admitted to police he had been huffing while driving. He was then arrested, police said.
