Driver uses solvent to avoid being sleepy

A driver was caught in the act of sniffing rugby last Monday.

The volatile substance, commonly used as an inhalant to achieve a euphoric effect, was put inside a 300 ml Royal True Orange plastic bottle.

The suspect was identified as Lemuel Jake Genova, 22, a resident of Kasilak, Bucana, Barangay 76-A. He claimed that he was using the substance to stay awake.

Inhalants like rugby, however, are considered a depressant rather than a stimulant. One of the side-effects is drowsiness.

The suspect is now under the custody of San Pedro Police Station.
