Deputy Rought was a member of the Southwest Enforcement Team (SWET) when he was mistakenly shot four times by his group leader. Rought was in prone position, crawling back to his group when friendly fire hit him in the right arm, left hip and lower back. The fourth round from the .223 semi-auto rifle hit him in his chest protected by his 2-week old Second Chance® level II armor. The angle at which the round struck his vest made the bullet glance off the armor. Thanks to his soft armor, none of the injuries were considered life threatening.
