Man Accused Of Hitting Girlfriend With Beer Bottle

Police say the victim's ear was partly severed and she will need surgery to fix it

A Mentor man is accused of partly severing his girlfriend's ear after he flung a beer bottle at her late Sunday night, Mentor Police Lt. Ken Zbiegien said.

Joshua Nasca, 25, had gone out with his girlfriend that evening. However, when they returned home, he wanted to go back out.

The two argued about it and Nasca flung a bottle at her, Zbiegien said.

The bottle hit the 23-year-old woman and the bottom of her ear was pulled away from her cheek, Zbiegien said.

The girl will need surgery to repair the injury, the lieutenant added.

The police were called and arrested Nasca. He has been charged with felonious assault.

Nasca was arraigned Monday in Mentor Municipal Court. Acting Judge Jeff McGaffick set his bond at $200,000, which was not posted.

His next court hearing was set for Nov. 26.

Oh please the man is an abuser!! Don't use the Veteran line as an excuse to get him out of trouble because you live the man and you don't want to see him locked up!!! Take it from me growing up with abuse my whole life!!! It's a sick world until you wake up and realize Lizzy it's his problem not yours and stop making excuses you are at fault and enabling the behavior !!! Get away and let the system help him before he kills someone!!!!!

To add to my last comment I have several family members that are Vets of war and its ashamed that someone would try to pull the PP card out after something like this!!! It's a cry for help !!! You want your bf free but a jury will see been at war had nothing to do with a drinking night of fun beating up a girlfriend sorry to be so blunt!!! Do your bf a favor and let him get the help he needs because im sure this was not your first encounter being from an abusive family growing up it never happens just once!!! You get serious Counceling please and take care of yourself!!
