NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The caretaker of a special-needs man is accused of abusing him.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Willie Miles Jr. was an employee of New Horizons.

In April a staff member at the facility allegedly saw him pulling on a patient's legs and slapping him across the face several times.

The patient was taken to the hospital for breathing problems.

Miles was fired by New Horizons and has been charged with abuse of an impaired adult.
