A San Diego man has been charged with sexual battery and mayhem after allegedly biting off another man’s fingertip during a scuffle at the Pasadena, CA stop of Beyoncé and Jay Z‘s “On the Run” tour Saturday night. Authorities allege that 25-year-old Roberto Alcaraz Garnica sexually assaulted a female attendee at the Rose Bowl concert, and proceeded to bite off the fingertip of the woman’s boyfriend when he stepped in to intervene, according to the Pasadena Star-News (via Billboard). Granica is currently being held on $100,000 bail.

According to Pasadena police Lt. John Luna, the alleged attack occurred after Alcaraz-Garnica groped a woman in her 20s who was attending the show, which drew a crowd of around 55,000 fans.

“The suspect sexually assaulted the female victim,” Luna told the Star-News. He says that the woman’s boyfriend confronted Granica, resulting in a dispute.

“During the altercation, the suspect bit the victim, causing serious injury to his finger,” the lieutenant said. “He lost the tip of one of his fingers.”

Police arrested 11 others during the Rose Bowl show: eight for public drunkeness, and three for ticket scalping. Granica, who was arrested inside the stadium 10 PM and booked later that night, is currently being held on $100,000 bail.

Representatives for both Jay-Z and Beyoncé have yet to comment. Meanwhile, the couple continued their Rose Bowl run with a second performance last night.
