Bastrop County has settled a federal lawsuit with the family of a Cedar Creek High School student for $775,000. He was hit by a Taser from an off duty sheriff's deputy after a fight and suffered a serious brain injury.
Last year on Nov. 20, two deputies tried to break up a fight between two girls at Cedar Creek High School.
Investigators say Noe Nino de Rivera began acting aggressively, leading a deputy to shock him with a stun gun -- he then fell to the ground and hitting his head.
He was in a coma for months with a serious brain injury.
The Bastrop County sheriff's deputy has been cleared of any wrongdoing by a grand jury.
