Student Abandoned in DEA Holding Cell

Hosted by  • 
The Federal Drug Enforcement Agency has acknowledged that agents arrested a 23-year-old college senior, told him he'd be released and then left him alone in a holding cell for five days with no food or water. The DEA calls it an accident. Daniel Chong was picked up in a drug raid near the University of California, San Diego and taken to the Kearny Mesa facility. He was questioned and told he would be let go. Then, his five-day nightmare began. Jeff McDonald reports for U-T San Diego (formerly the "San Diego Union-Tribune").
