State Schools Fight Club

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas Inspector General Bart Bevers says two new allegations of fighting among residents at the Corpus Christi State School were found to be false.

One allegation said residents fought last week as an employee photographed the fight and the other claimed that employees locked
themselves in a room during a fight.

Bevers said in a story for the Corpus Christi Caller-Times that both statements had been found to be untrue.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Aging and Disability Services said the 10 employees who were placed on administrative leave after the new allegations surfaced were still off work while a Department of Family and Protective Services investigation was being conducted.

The new allegations were made after six current and former employees staffers at the school were being charged earlier this month with injury to a disabled person over separate fights allegedly organized for the staff's entertainment.

Four of the workers were arrested and authorities sought two others.
