A former member of the U.S. national wrestling team who was severely injured during a training camp exercise held at Camp Pendleton has reached a $12 million settlement with the United States of America, it was announced Tuesday.

Richard Perry and his wife, Gina Cimmino, filed a lawsuit alleging Perry was struck with a baton during a 2018 exercise, which shattered his eye socket and skull, and pushed shattered bone fragments into his brain.

The injury nearly killed him and left him with multiple traumatic brain injuries, skull fractures and “permanent, disfiguring, disabling injuries,” according to the complaint.
