DEA agents apologize for forgetting college student in cell for four days

Dear All,

On page A7 of the Thursday, May 3, 2012 Daily News (a free newpaper that serves mainly southern San Mateo County), there is a 2 column 18 paragraph article titled “Student left unattended in cell for 5 days sues DEA.” The reporter who wrote the ariticle is Julie Watson of the Associated Press. The student’s lawyer’s name is Eugene Iredale and he has filed a notice to sue with the DEA’s chief counsel in Washington. I’m sure that the student, Daniel Chong," wishes it were an urban legend, but I fear it is not.
