Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein said Wednesday police handcuffed her to a chair during her eight-hour imprisonment following her arrest outside the second presidential debate.

"For most of the time it was just [running mate] Cheri Honkala and myself," Stein told Democracy Now anchor Amy Goodman. "Yet they felt the need to keep us in tight plastic restraints tightly secured to metal chairs."
