The “Alleged” Is Probably Not Necessary When Describing This Indiana Paint Huffer

This is a recent and real mug shot of one Kelly Gibson, a long-time paint-huffer from Fort Wayne, Indiana:

From the Smoking Gun:

For the 48th time since 1992, the Indiana man has been arrested for inhaling paint fumes. Gibson’s latest huffing collar came when his wife summoned cops to the couple’s Fort Wayne home shortly after midnight on April 14.

As seen in the above mug shot, officers found an impaired Gibson covered in silver paint. He was booked into the Allen County jail for allegedly inhaling toxic vapors.

The image of Gibson will likely draw comparisons to the classic booking photo of Patrick “Goldface” Tribett, an Ohio man who has earned online infamy for his series of paint-dappled mug shots.

    Hey philistine, he’s not a “paint huffer.”

    He’s an artist.

    Innocent until proven guilty. Previous behavior is not proof.
    What if he came home, caught a cop balling his wife;
    the cop grabbed Kelly’s head (hence the ruffled hair) and stuck his face in some fresh paint,
    then arrested Kelly to create a distraction.

    It should be remembered that if it weren’t for the heavy hand of the good law enforcement officers of America sending out this strong message of intolerance to its citizens, people everywhere would be recklessly sniffing paint or any number of other intoxicating substances, leading to mental, physical and (worst of all) moral debilitation, premature death, and the decline and ultimate collapse of society. Indeed it is difficult to comprehend that in the face of such compelling evidence there are those who wish to actually decriminalise it! Really! I mean, why stop there? Let’s make murder and oral sex legal too! I fought in three world wars so that good people can have live in freedom. And now that they have their freedom, what do they do with it? I’ll tell you what: Anything they fucking like, that’s what. It’s a disgrace.
