A motorist was arrested Monday on Interstate 44 after other drivers told police they saw him huffing air duster in his car, Oklahoma City police reported.

About 3:30 p.m., three men in a moving company’s truck were behind a red Jeep on the interstate near Memorial Road when the front vehicle stopped in the right lane.

When the men in the moving van pulled around the Jeep, they observed the Jeep’s driver huffing air duster behind the wheel, police said.

The men stopped their truck, approached the man and pulled him out of the car. One of the men then moved the Jeep out of traffic and onto the shoulder.

Around that time, an officer noticed traffic backing up around the trucks and pulled over to investigate. When the officer spoke with the Jeep’s driver, his pupils were “pin dot size,” his speech was slow and he was unsteady on his feet, police reported.

He then told the officer he “made a mistake, and it won’t happen again,” police said.

The driver, Conner Rockey, 22, of Moore, was arrested on a complaint of public intoxication and was released from Oklahoma County jail on Tuesday.
