Video: Huffing Hubby Gets Public Whipping

By Kirwan Gray 05/02/11

It’s the 48th time Kelly Gibson has been charged with inhaling paint since 1992.

We’ve covered this subject before, but did people really believe us? Need more evidence? Paint thinner, furniture polish, acetone, and other substances that produce chemical vapors can be sniffed from plastic bags for a cheap and deadly high. As we reported earlier, patients who were 45 years of age or older represented a whopping 16% of admissions. In this compelling video, a wife speaks out on the subject of her husband’s habit of huffing. “My husband is a good guy," Elizabeth Gibson told station WANE in Fort Wayne, Indiana. “But when it comes to that huffing, it makes him a monster.” When officers arrested the man at their home late last week, police said Kelly Gibson was holding a can of silver spray paint  and a paint-covered plastic bag, “sitting on the couch with his shirt off, and his hands, mouth, nose and chin covered in silver paint.”
