Sabeghi is the second U.S. military veteran to suffer from serious injuries caused by the OPD during the Occupy demonstrations. Last week, marine Scott Olsen was struck in the head by a tear gas canister and will now need brain surgery in order to alleviate the swelling.
Both Sabeghi and Olson served tours of duty in the Iraq War.
