A man was twice arrested this weekend for huffing compressed air, the second time after he was spotted laying in the road near Caton Farm and Rivertowne Drive, Joliet Police Cmdr. Al Roechner said.

David L. Terry, 25, was picked up the first time at about 11:20 a.m. Friday at 333 Madison St., not far from Presence St. Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, police reports show. He was charged with unlawful use of intoxicating compounds and released on a recognizance bond. Terry's address is listed as 5204 Burgess Dr., which has a Plainfield mailing address but is within the City of Joliet.

A little more than 24 hours later, at about 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Terry was spotted prone in the roadway by a passing Joliet police sergeant and charged with use, sale or delivery of intoxicating compounds and violation of a bond requirement, Roechner said. 

He is being held in the Will County jail pending a bond hearing.

According to jail and circuit clerk records, Terry has been arrested twice previously this year on similar charges -- in May for driving under the influence of alcohol and intoxicating compounds and in July for unlawful use of an intoxicating compound. In November 2009 and August 2008, he was also arrested on unlawful use of an intoxicating compound charges, records show.

His criminal record also shows previous arrests on charges of aggravated battery, battery, retail theft, theft and criminal trespass.
