Man Files Suit After Losing 100 Pounds in Jail, What a Loser
Man Files Suit After Losing 100 Pounds in Jail, Not getting enough Food
This guy might want to be spending time in the jails law library finding out how to defend himself on his murder charge rather than how to get more food. I might be going out on a limb here but I think this guy is the Biggest Loser
An inmate awaiting trial on a murder charge is suing the county, complaining he has lost more than 100 pounds because of the jailhouse menu.
Broderick Lloyd Laswell says he isn't happy that he's down to 308 pounds after eight months in the Benton County jail. He has filed a federal lawsuit complaining the jail doesn't provide inmates with enough food.
According to the suit, Laswell weighed 413 pounds when he was jailed in September. Police say he and a co-defendant fatally beat and stabbed a man, then set his home on fire.
"On several occasions I have started to do some exercising and my vision went blurry and I felt like I was going to pass out," Laswell wrote in his complaint. "About an hour after each meal my stomach starts to hurt and growl. I feel hungry again."
