A former aide at Sunmount Developmental Center is charged with abusing a resident. Sunmount is in Tupper Lake, N.Y.

Prosecutors say Timothy MacCrimmon, 46, of Tupper Lake, shoved the victim's head into a wall while walking him down a hallway and called him a racial epithet. The resident, who had difficulty walking and is legally blind, suffered bruising and swelling to his head.

A nurse reported the incident to a Vulnerable Persons Hotline.

MacCrimmon is on administrative leave.
