Police: Man beat up woman, faces drug charges

NEW CASTLE — A South Side man was arrested on assault and drug-related charges after allegedly beating up a woman.

Jason M. Cappabianco, 28, of 1502 S. Jefferson St. was  charged yesterday with simple assault, harassment, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police said they found quantities of Clonazepam pills and Suboxone sublingual film, prescribed for maintenance treatment of opioid dependence, in his pockets when they went to his house around 11 p.m. Thursday in response to a domestic disturbance call.

Cappabianco allegedly punched, kicked and threw a woman down the stairs, causing her to temporarily lose consciousness, according to reports. She was treated at Jameson Hospital for her injuries.

Police said Cappabianco was combative during his arrest.

District Judge Melissa A. Amodie set his jail bond at $2,000.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
