The man seen in a video being tied to a chair by police was not severely intoxicated, RCMP said yesterday.

Lloyd Gilbert was arrested for causing a disturbance and the restraint chair, which police say is an approved device, was used to keep him from harming himself, others and property.

Gilbert was tied to a chair for three hours and 20 minutes, during which he urinated on himself, and was checked twice.
