Psychologist Arrested for Huffing Nitrous in Store [CT]

Psychologist Arrested for Huffing Nitrous in Store
July 13, 2005 - foxnews.com

An expert in eating disorders collapsed in a supermarket after inhaling propellant from whipped cream cans, according to police.

Lisa G. Berzins, a prominent psychologist who has been on national television and radio shows and in newspaper articles, was arrested on a warrant Friday charging her in the May 29 incident, The Hartford Courant reported.

Berzins, 49, has a practice in West Hartford. She has written and lectured on eating disorders, female development, sex roles and self-esteem, according a speaker's biography from the American Psychological Association.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, West Hartford police responded to the Farmington Avenue Stop & Shop and found Berzins lying on the floor and bleeding from her head. Berzins, the affidavit says, told police she did not know what happened.

Police interviewed witnesses and collected evidence, then determined that Berzins apparently inhaled from three cans of whipped cream containing nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas, the affidavit says.

Berzins was charged with possession of a restricted substance, criminal mischief and creating a public disturbance. She was released on $500 bail and is to appear in Hartford Superior Court on July 21.

"These are only allegations," said Bob Ludgin, Berzins' lawyer. "My client is innocent unless convicted. I have confidence that there will be no convictions."

Possession of a restricted substance? How many other people have puchased cans of whipped cream... they better go arrest them too.

If anything, she should have been charged with theft for using a product in the store without paying for it.

> and found Berzins lying on the floor and bleeding from her head

Sounds like a lawsuit waiting to happen. No warning labels on the cans, hard floors, no warning labels in the store, etc...

> My client is innocent unless convicted.

Hmm... not "my clent is innocent" *chuckle*

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

Ridiculous that she is a psychologist yet stole her gas like a 15 year old kid might.

hahahaha I wonder if she's a blonde.

I read about this in the paper. Rather stupid in my opinion, if she's such a prominent psychologist she should've just put some money into getting nitrous online and doing it in the privacy of her house.

What was she thinking?

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.
