The girlfriend of Gordon D. Garcia, 24, claimed Garcia entered her room at the Carson Valley Motor Lodge while he was intoxicated. She alleged that three times he demanded she have intercourse with him, and when she wouldn’t, he punched her in the face and bit her ear. Both injuries required stitches. According to court documents, she also had numerous bite marks on other areas of her body.

Deputies found him later gambling at the Carson Valley Inn. According to court documents, he has “numerous priors for domestic battery.”

His bail is set at $60,000.
