SWAT

Down in Monterey

|

Monterey County, California, officials agreed to pay $2.6 million to settle a civil rights lawsuit brought by the family of Rogelio Serrato Jr. Serrato died in 2011 in a fire caused by a flash bang grenade thrown into his home by a sheriff's SWAT team. Deputies were looking for suspects in a recent shooting. They later determined that Serrato had nothing to do with the shooting and was unarmed at the time of his death.
