Lincoln police came into contact with a man twice in recent days who was described as paranoid and delusional. Officers eventually discovered how Dale Nelson came to be in that condition. They say he had been injecting hookah cleaner.

A hookah is an instrument used to smoke tobacco. The smoke is cooled by water. Cleaning solution is used to eliminate germs and remove aftertaste.

Police cited Nelson for unlawful use of toxic compounds, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, and for three counts of vandalism. They say he was transported to a hospital for treatment on both occasions.
