After four hours at an agency field office, Chong says he was questioned by agents and told he had been in the “wrong place at the wrong time,” and that he would be released. Then, he says, he was placed in the dark cell and forgotten there for four days, despite kicking and screaming for help. He grew delusional, drank his own urine for hydration, and, eventually, attempted suicide by breaking his glasses and using the shards to cut himself. U-T San Diego reports that he attempted to carve “Sorry Mom” into his arm.
The agents also apparently left a bag of meth in the room, just in case Chong got bored.
