GAS-SNIFFER NOSE SHE'S WHIPPED
An expert in eating disorders collapsed in a supermarket after inhaling propellant from whipped cream cans, according to police.
Lisa Berzins, 49, a prominent psychologist, was arrested on a warrant Friday charging her in the May 29 incident, The Hartford Courant reported.
According to the arrest-warrant, Berzins was found lying on the floor of a market and bleeding from her head. She told police she did not know what happened.
Police determined Berzins apparently inhaled from three cans of whipped cream containing nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas, the affidavit says.
