Kid's getting a hell of a payday when that inevitable civil suit gets settled...

As NBC San Diego was first to report Saturday, the DEA confirmed its agents were investigating an incident in which a suspect, arrested Saturday, April 21, was detained at their office for several days and allegedly forgotten about.

Chong said he was at a friend’s house in University City celebrating 4/20, a day many marijuana users set aside to smoke, when agents came inside and raided the residence. Chong was then taken to the DEA office in Kearny Mesa.

He said agents questioned him, and then told him he could go home. One agent even offered him a ride, Chong said. No criminal charges were filed against him.

But Chong did not go home that night. Instead, he was placed in a cell for five days without any human contact and was not given food or drink. In his desperation, he said he was forced to drink his own urine.

“I had to do what I had to do to survive….I hallucinated by the third day,” Chong said. “I was completely insane.”

Chong said he lost roughly 15 pounds during the time he was alone. His lawyer confirmed that Chong ingested a powdery substance found inside the cell. Later testing revealed the substance was methamphetamine.

He said when employees discovered him in the cell that they looked confused and nervous. A DEA employee rode with him to the hospital, where they paid for Chong’s visit.

He spent three days in the intensive care unit at Sharp Hospital and his kidneys were close to failing.

"Chong" busted for smoking weed at a 4/20 party? Where was Cheech?
Is this a police report or a movie trailer?

I've heard of this "asian diet" craze. Very effective. Lose up to 15 lbs a week

At least according to him, he found it there...

If 'cell' is an ancient oriental term for 'rectal cavity' then I believe him.

This doesn't seem at all possible. I mean, any jail I've heard of, you just make a shit load of noise and somebody is going to come and get you. Plus why the hell would they put him in a cell at all?

None of it makes any sense...

I heard about this report this past weekend. There are more allegations opening up now.

Supposedly some Agents were hitting on some chick down in the Gaslamp quarter, boyfriend got involved somehow, blah blah blah. They tried pressing charges but were dismissed. Now the case is re-opened because of the OP and the hooker scandal.

Lots of San Diego news this week.

That would make a great plot for the next Harold and Kumar go to White Castle.
