Bartemius Crouch sacks his house-elf, Winky

He does so after she is found holding the wand which had cast a Dark Mark above the World Cup campground.

The Ministry officials realize it is very unlikely that the house-elf really cast the spell, but Winky’s possession of a wand violates the Code of Wand use. The wand is Harry’s; Barty Crouch Jr. steals it and uses it to cast a Dark Mark before it ends up in his house-elf’s hands (GF9).
