A giant man punched his wheelchair-bound girlfriend in the face after being sick and tired of taking care of her, according to police in Florida.

Vero Beach police said that they have arrested 37-year-old Patrick Moan after being accused of attacking his limbless girlfriend, 39-year-old Brandi Gregory.

Moan has been charged with battery.

He was booked into the Indian River County Jail and his bail has been set at $1,000.

According to the police investigation, Gregory was born without arms and legs and is unable to care for herself.

Two years ago, she met Moan and he began taking care of her.

On Sunday, Moan punched Gregory in the face.

He took away her cell phone so she shouldn’t be able to call the police.

Two hours later, Moan wheeled her to a nearby Walmart, where he told employees what he had done to his girlfriend.

He also asked them to call the police.

Police officers arrived at the scene arrested Moan.

Gregory told police that Moan beats her about once a month or whenever he becomes drunk.

During police questioning, Moan told police that he punched his girlfriend because he no longer wanted to take care of her.

He got sick and tired of pushing her around in a wheelchair all the time.

Moan said that he wanted to go to jail so the government would have no choice but to take care of Gregory.

Moan is 6 feet and 9 inches tall and weighs 185 pounds.
