CARTHAGE, N.C. — A former Army sergeant wounded by a deputy during a military training exercise in North Carolina has settled a civil rights lawsuit for $580,000.

The Fayetteville Observer reported Friday that 35-year-old Stephen Phelps agreed to dismiss his lawsuit against the Moore County Sheriff’s Office and former Deputy Randall Butler as part of the out-of-court settlement reached in November.

The settlement is in addition to more than $650,000 a federal jury awarded him in October.

Phelps was shot in the arm and chest in February 2002 during an Army role-playing exercise called Robin Sage, the final exam for soldiers in Special Forces training. First Lt. Tallas Tomeny was killed.

Butler has a pending lawsuit against the United States involving the shooting.
