Patrick Tribett was nabbed in July 2005 by Ohio cops and charged with abusing harmful intoxicants. The 41-year-old Tribett, it seems, had been huffing spray paint and needed a refill (he was popped after seeking a fresh can at a Bellaire General Store). According to police, Tribett's pupils were constricted and he replied slowly to their questions. Oh, and "officers observed the paint on face and hands," as can be seen in the below mug shot. Tribett, who was previously busted for assault, domestic violence, and inhaling harmful intoxicants, was booked into the Belmont County Sheriff's Office lockup.

The primary agent in spray paint is toluene. It's really not healthy. Like other solvents, toluene is also used as an inhalant drug for its intoxicating properties; however this causes severe neurological harm.
PATRICK TRIBETT JOKES
His wife left him some time ago, I heard she left in a huff.
You shouldn't paint their relationship that way!
Right now, he could probably use a shoulder to krylon

ODE TO A WARRIORS FAN
Like the blue shirt man
Who once told me how to spray my can
Take time. Then hit the rag again.
And just keep huffin' o-o-on......
