A Greenville, KY woman has been arrested in Muhlenberg County, accused of huffing canned air and crashing her car in a parking lot.   

Kentucky State Police say they investigated a single-vehicle, injury crash involving an impaired driver that occurred in the parking lot of Harkins Station, just west of Greenville, on Sunday a little after 1:30 p.m.  

The investigation revealed that Stephanie D. Townsell, 33 of Greenville, KY, was operating a Chrysler passenger car southbound through the Harkins Station parking lot when she lost control of the vehicle and struck a pole.

Townsell, who was wearing a seatbelt, was transported by ambulance to the Muhlenberg Community Hospital where she was treated and released.

She was determined to be under the influence of canned, compressed air; commonly referred to as "dusting" and charged with DUI, operating on a suspended/revoked operator's license, and failure of non-owner to maintain required insurance.

She was lodged in the Muhlenberg County Detention Center.
