A Murfreesboro group home for adults with intellectual and physical disabilities is under investigation on allegations of abuse for the 72nd time in the past five years, the Daily News Journal reports. Employees of the Stones River Center are most recently accused of choking and assaulting a patient who became combative when asked to remove his headphones. After the altercation, the man told his mother that he was assaulted. The mother noticed unexplained injuries on the man’s body and notified authorities of the incident. Staff members involved maintain that that they did nothing wrong and that the restraint performed was approved for use on aggressive patients.
