Monterey County has agreed to pay $2.6million to the family of a Greenfield man who died in a house fire after sheriff's deputies threw a "flash-bang" grenade through his window.
The settlement was announced Monday by attorneys for the family of Rogelio "Roger" Serrato Jr. who filed a federal civil rights lawsuit in the wake of the 2011 incident.
County Counsel Charles McKee said the county's insurance carrier settled the lawsuit without admitting any wrongdoing.
Serrato's death, he said, was a "tragic, tragic event and we send our condolences to the family," he said. "We think it could have been avoided if people had heeded the directives from the officers to leave the house."
