Stafford, VA. Deputies with the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office arrested a suspect on Friday morning after he ran into traffic and tried to stop a school bus while inhaling an aerosol product.

On April 20, 2018 at approximately 8:30 a.m., Deputy Dominic Torrice was dispatched to the area of Greenspring Drive and Vine Place in reference to a male wearing a blue shirt and pajama pants jumping into traffic while inhaling an aerosol product.

Deputy Demirci arrived to the scene first and located the suspect at Greenspring Drive and Barksdale Place. The suspect refused to remove his hands from his pockets, prompting the deputy to command the suspect at gunpoint to get on the ground. The deputy observed white, dry saliva at the corners of the suspect’s mouth and the suspect made several incoherent statements.

When Deputy Torrice arrived, the suspect, identified as Micah Jamar Kynard, 21, of Stafford was detained. At the same time, a witness approached the deputies to let them know that he observed the suspect attempting to stop a school bus. Several other witnesses also came forward to advise they saw the suspect acting strangely.

Deputies reached out to the school bus driver who told them that the suspect ran directly in front of the bus and tried to stop it. He was observed inhaling the contents of an aerosol can and then throwing the canister into a ditch.

Deputies found a green aerosol container of “Ultra Duster” in the area. K9 Steel alerted to the can, indicating that it had been recently handled. In the meantime, the suspect began to shake violently in the car, which deputies noted is consistent with someone who has inhaled noxious chemicals.

Kynard was incarcerated at Rappahannock Regional Jail and charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, inhalation of drugs, and pedestrian interference with traffic.
