RACINE — A worker at a Racine group home is accused of punching a resident multiple times, all because of a cheeseburger.

Investigators say Canei Brown, 19, was working third shift at a group home that houses disabled residents last month.

A man staying there says Brown punched him several times after he ate a hamburger that must have belonged to her.

The criminal complaint states the victim stated, “Canei she whooped my (expletive); she’s very strong; over a cheeseburger.”

Brown is charged with disorderly conduct and a felony count of “intentionally abusing patients – causing bodily harm.”
