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.
