An employee of a Lacombe-area behavioral health facility was arrested for sexual battery after he was seen touching an elderly patient inappropriately, according to the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office.

Management at Beacon Behavioral Hospital contacted the Sheriff’s Office late Monday night after a staff member reported seeing a registered nurse who was working at the facility in a patient’s room touching a 78-year-old Alzheimer’s patient in a sexual manner.

George Terrebonne, 67, of Covington, was arrested for sexual battery and booked in to the St. Tammany Parish jail. He  was released March 1 after posting a $35,000 bond.

The investigation is ongoing.
