CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Authorities say an adult-care provider is accused of abusing three women in her care at her Chandler home.

Chandler police said 42-year-old Krysta M. Douglas was arrested Thursday on suspicion of physically and emotionally abusing vulnerable adults.

Court records show Douglas provided care for three adults and helped prepare them for transport to a day program facility.

One of the females got upset about a hair decoration not being in her hair and Douglas reportedly became angry.

Co-workers said Douglas yelled upsetting comments at the woman several times and allegedly shook her.

They said the three adults and two caregivers later got into a van and Douglas drove recklessly.

One woman hit her head on the van's window and reportedly was taken to an urgent care facility to be evaluated.
