MAN JAILED FOR TRAFFIC TICKET DIES AFTER 17 DAYS OF UNTREATED DRUG WITHDRAWAL 

  
David Stojcevski, a 32-year-old Michigan native, who was jailed for not paying a $772 traffic ticket, died from untreated drug withdrawals. Stojcevski was allegedly denied his drug withdrawal medication for 17 days while in jail, and it resulted in the unthinkable. 
Stojcevski’s family claims that he died under a 24 hour full surveillance camera that guards used to monitor his cell activity. The lawsuit that his family filed for his wrongful death also claims that Stojcevski was neglected, even after twitching on the jail floor and pleading for medical care.

 The family’s suit says Stojcevski was on suicide watch and stripped naked for his safety, while being denied the medication that he was prescribed by a doctor prior to his arrest.
His family filed this lawsuit back in March of 2015, but the story is now going viral after WDIV obtained a video of Stojcevski final days in his cell.
