An Iowa woman Ziyuan Zhong, 22 has been charged with DUI and possession of nitrous oxide after she was pulled over in a luxury car littered with hundreds of empty Whip-Its canisters.
She was arrested by police on Monday evening after they noticed she was behind the wheel of the 2014 Maserati coupe that had a ‘driving status of barred’.
When talking with Zhong, officers noticed she appeared under the influence and had ‘bloodshot, watery eyes, dilated pupils, impaired speech, and impaired balance.’
She later admitted to police that she inhaled 50 to 75 cans of nitrous oxide between 3pm and 7pm that evening.
Zhong further confessed to inhaling upwards of 200 canisters per week because they ‘make her feel good’.
