Matthew Quentin D’Auria, 33, inhaled the substance at a bus stop on the intersection of South Federal Highway and Southeast 10th Street and hid the can in his pocket when he saw an officer pull up, according to Delray Police.

The officer said D’Auria looked intoxicated. He found another half-empty can a few feet away from D’Auria.

D’Auria was arrested on a charge of inhaling harmful chemicals and also charged with grand theft from an active warrant. He is being held at the county jail on a $2,500 bond.

This is the second time this year D’Auria has been arrested for huffing in Delray Beach. The other incident happened on Feb. 7 with a can of aerosol, according to police records. City police last year gave a Lantana man at least his 18th arrest for the same offense.
