If you’re not familiar with the exploits of Patrick Tribett over the past few years, then I’m afraid you’re just not living life, my friends. The West Virginia man is an Internet sensation thanks to various appearances on The Smoking Gun for his multiple arrests for paint huffing. Well, I hope you’re sitting down, because Tribett has been arrested again for throwing himself a one-man ballpark giveaway. And the prize was a can of sweet, metallic spray paint. I’ll give you a second to catch your pigment-scented breath.
Wetzel County (WV) sheriff’s deputies were called to Hydro-Drive Ball Field, the apparent home of the Fightin’ Krylons, because of a suspicious man lurking around the ballpark. Turns out it was our old buddy Tribett, and I’ll bet you’re wondering if he had gold paint on his face. He sure did. This arrest is a milestone for Tribett, as it is believed to be the 10th time that the aerosol-aficionado has been booked for paint huffing. They say the 10th time is the one you’ll remember… *sniffs, huffs* forever.
