Police in Rock Hill, South Carolina, say a man sped past a stopped school bus Wednesday morning after he was seen huffing from several aerosol cans.

Adam Perlowich, 32, is charged with passing a stopped school bus, resisting police and inhaling aromatic hydrocarbons after police say he was seen huffing keyboard cleaner from an aerosol can.

A witness said he began following Perlowich after he found him parked in the middle of the road with his head against the window of his car. When the man approached Perlowich's vehicle to check on him, his vehicle began to roll down a hill.

The witness told police that when Perlowich's vehicle again came to a stop, he put a can of keyboard cleaner into his mouth and inhaled. Perlowich then drove away as the witness called 911.

While driving away, the witness said Perlowich sped through intersections and passed a stopped school bus that had its stop arm extended and red lights flashing.

Police said he continued to huff as he was driving, and eventually pulled into the parking lot of an apartment complex.

Police found seven cans of keyboard cleaner in Perlowich's car, five of which were empty.

"He may have been so high and confused that he didn't even know there was a police officer standing there," said Mark Bollinger, with the Rock Hill Police Department. “He just didn't know what was going on. He just wanted to keep huffing out of the can."

Perlowich was not charged with driving under the influence because officers say there is no test to determine the chemicals he was inhaling were illegal intoxicants.

Perlowich was released on $2,200 bond.
