Man Is Accused Of Hurting A Patient At Assisted Living Facility

A man accused of hurting an assisted living patient pleads not guilty Monday.

23-year-old Charles Gabbard of Manchester allegedly abused a 41-year-old resident at the Bush House in London.

Gabbard is accused of tackling the resident and fracturing his arm.

Gabbard posted a $100,000 property bond in Laurel County Circuit Court and was released Monday morning.

Officials from the attorney general's office say Gabbard is a caretaker at the facility, which was operated by new foundations.

The director of New Foundations has denied abuse allegations.
