[Ed. – A horrible, barbaric way to die]
The family of a man who spent his last days alive strapped in a restraint chair suffering a horrifying fate found out this week that they will be receiving $12.5 million as part of a settlement in the death of Anthony Huff.
In 2016, on June 4, Huff was arrested on charges of public intoxication. He was drunk. Instead of spending the night in the drunk tank and getting released the following day, Huff would spend several days in jail. Two days after he was booked into the Garfield County Jail, Huff would suffer from hallucinations due to alcohol withdrawal. Instead of getting him help or letting him out to seek help, Huff was bound to a restraint chair—for days.
According to the lawsuit, Huff was neglected to death.
