A man was arrested at Beyoncé and Jay Z’s On The Run concert in California on Saturday after he allegedly bit off the tip of another man’s finger.

Robert Alcaraz-Garnica, 25, was arrested at Pasadena’s Rose Bowl after he reportedly groped the victim’s girlfriend, and as a fight ensued, Alcaraz-Garnica chomped on the man’s finger.

Lieutenant John Luna of the Pasadena Police Department confirmed that Alcaraz-Garnica “sexually assaulted” a female and the man sustained a “serious injury” to his finger.

Alcaraz-Garnica was arrested on suspicion of sexual battery and mayhem following the incident and is being held on $100,000 bail pending his initial court appearance.

In addition, local police also arrested eight revelers for public intoxication and two for ticket scalping.

Saturday’s gig was part of the hip-hop supercouple’s On The Run tour, and the pair played another show at the same venue on Sunday.
