According to BuzzFeed, Three workers at a North Carolina assisted living home have been arrested following allegations that they were running a fight club–style operation made up of elderly patients with dementia.
Tonacia Yvonne Tyson, 20, Taneshia Deshawn Jordan, 26, and Marilyn Latish McKey, 32, were arrested on assault charges earlier this month, a spokesperson for the Winston-Salem Police Department told BuzzFeed News.
The eldercare facility, called Danby House, specializes in caring for patients with Alzheimer's, according to their website.
Police said the three Danby House employees were allegedly encouraging the residents to physically fight each other. In at least one case, one of the employees allegedly assaulted a resident by shoving them.
The workers also filmed the fights and egged the residents on, police told BuzzFeed News.
