A man was arrested at the Beyoncé/Jay Z concert at the Rose Bowl on Saturday night for groping a woman and subsequently biting off the woman's boyfriend's fingertip when they got into a fight.

If he liked the finger that much maybe he shoulda put a ring on it?

Roberto Alcaraz-Garnica, 25, of San Diego was arrested in the Rose Bowl around 10 p.m. last night for sexual battery and mayhem. Alcaraz-Garnica groped a woman in her 20s, which set off the scuffle with her boyfriend. "During the altercation, the suspect bit the victim, causing serious injury to his finger. He lost the tip of one of his fingers," Lieutenant John Luna of the Pasadena Police Department told the Pasadena Star-News.

The police also made 10 other arrests last night, for public drunkenness and ticket scalping. Around 55,000 people were in attendance at the sold-out concert, which is scheduled to have a second performance tonight as part of the 'On The Run' tour.
