Crystal Marie Leyhue, a healthcare worker in Fulton County has been indicted on an assault charge for allegedly putting a hot pepper in an elderly person’s mouth. The indictment stems from Leyhue putting a hot pepper in residents’ mouths while laughing and videotaping  their reaction. Another employee at the facility says they saw what happened and reported it to her superiors.  A press release from Attorney General Jack Conway’s office states Leyhue was a caregiver at the Haws Memorial Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.   Leyhue was then fired and now faces a 4th degree assault charge.
