A Florida woman has been arrested after allegedly hitting her boyfriend in the head with a raw steak.

According to a Marion County Sheriff's Office report, the man told deputies Elsie Egan repeatedly hit him with the uncooked meat and slapped his face after he refused a piece of sliced bread. The man said he wanted a bread roll.

Egan, 53, denied hitting the man with the steak but did admit to slapping him, saying she did it "so that he could learn."

The man told deputies that Egan was his live-in girlfriend. He declined medical assistance.

Egan was charged with abuse of a disabled adult.

According to online records, she has been released on $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court in January. It's unclear if she has an attorney.
