Ohio man hurt jumping from jail ledge, sues officials

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A man who jumped from a second-floor jail ledge onto a concrete floor and broke both of his legs and ankles is suing five southeastern Ohio counties claiming the jail denied him medication and care while withdrawing from an anti-anxiety drug.

The Zanesville Times-Recorder reports Richard White's federal lawsuit says White's doctor had been tapering him off benzodiazepines before his February 2016 arrest for a parole violation.

White was jailed at the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail, which is used by Hocking, Morgan, Vinton, Perry and Adams counties. He has sued commissioners from those counties and the jail's warden.

An attorney for the insurance company that provides coverage to the jail couldn't be reached for comment.

The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $75,000.
