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.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
