Nolasco is charged with gross sexual imposition for allegedly pushing his way into a woman’s apartment and forcing himself on her, according to a police affidavit. He denied the allegations and told police the woman pulled him into the apartment.
Nolasco is being held in the Burleigh Morton Detention Center on $500,000 bail. The center’s website shows he also is being held for Immigration and Customs Enforcement for being in the country illegally.
