Police Find Iowa City Woman Driving a Maserati Filled with Several Hundred Whip-Its
This is quite the contrast between an extremely sophisticated car and an extremely unsophisticated way to get high.
Police in Iowa City, Iowa pulled over a 2014 Maserati on Monday night, when they ran the plates and found out the owner had, quote, "a driving status of 'barred.'"
The driver was a 22-year-old woman named Ziyuan Zhong. And when the cops looked in her car, they noticed lots of canisters of Whip-Its. And not just a few... several hundred canisters.
If you're not familiar, Whip-Its are a brand of nitrous oxide canisters that people inhale for a quick high. I've always heard it called "hippie crack."
Ziyuan's eyes were bloodshot and her pupils were dilated. She also had trouble speaking and balancing. And she admitted she used about 50 to 75 canisters that day. Is that a lot? It sounds like a lot.
She was arrested on multiple charges, including driving under the influence and possession of nitrous oxide.
