DEA to Pay $4.1M to Student Left In Holding Cell

July 30, 2013  | 

The Drug Enforcement Administration has agreed to pay $4.1 million to a college student mistakenly left in a holding cell for five days who had sued the agency.

Daniel Chong, 25, said he now suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder from the "really bad, horrble accident," reports the Los Angeles Times. Chong and his attorney announced the settlement Tuesday.

Chong was swept up in a drug raid in April 2012 when he went to smoke marijuana with his friends. He was questioned briefly and told he would be released.

He was left in a 5-by-10 foot windowless room for five days without food, water, or toilet facilities. Chong said he went "completely insane" and was forced to drink his own urine.
