A car thief who suffered personal injuries when a sheriff’s K-9 bit him has filed a $750,000 claim against Stanislaus County, California. He filed the claim from prison.
According to 30-year-old parolee Matthew Fann, on November 23, he was seen by deputies driving a stolen vehicle.
The claim Fann filed says that as a result of the attack, a tendon was ripped from his arm, he no longer has the use of his pinky finger, he has a “nasty” 6-inch long scar, and he is in constant pain.
According to sheriff’s department spokeswoman Gina Leguria, Fann had been returned to the Sierra Conservation Center near Jamestown, California for a parole violation and was given an additional 4-year prison sentence for auto theft.
