Ex-aide at vets home in Big Spring faces trial
BIG SPRING, Texas (AP) - A now-former aide at a state veterans home in Big Spring has pleaded not guilty over a 2007 incident in which a man in his 90s was hurt.
Bryson Vanderbilt of Big Spring entered the plea Wednesday. A court-appointed attorney for Vanderbilt, Wayne Frost of Midland, did not immediately return a call Thursday from The Associated Press.
A grand jury indicted Vanderbilt on a charge of injury to a child, elderly or disabled person over the incident at the Lamun-Lusk-Sanchez Texas State Veterans Home.
The Dallas Morning News, through open records laws, obtained documents on the investigation of the late 2007 incident in which a 97-year-old man was injured. The 25-year-old Vanderbilt is accused of "striking, pushing, grabbing and forcefully handling a resident."
Vanderbilt faces trial June 7.
