Charges have been dropped for 30-year old Tyesha Floyd, a former State School employee charged with allowing two residents to fight.
Floyd had been indicted by a grand jury on a charge of causing or allowing injury to a disabled person. The incident reportedly happened after the infamous "Fight Club" videos in July of 2009.
On Tuesday, the district attorney said the decision to drop the charges was based on new evidence that was discovered in a report issued by the Health and Human Services Commission.
"The report casts doubts about the credibility of some of the witnesses, and some of the actions that were reported," District Attorney Mark Skurka said. "Based on their decision, their decision that these witnesses were not credible to go forward in the administrative hearing -- and that's clearly what this is, an administrative hearing. No, a criminal law hearing -- it sure casts doubt on the credibility of the witnesses that we would have used in our case."
Floyd is no longer employed at the Corpus Christi State Supported Living Center.
