Brawl at Jay-Z/ Beyonce concert leaves 11 people in jail
PASADENA, California (AP) — Authorities say a man was arrested at Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Rose Bowl concert in Southern California after allegedly groping a woman and then biting off the tip of her boyfriend’s finger during a fight.
The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports that 25-year-old Roberto Alcaraz-Garnica of San Diego was taken into custody Saturday on suspicion of sexual battery and mayhem.
Pasadena police Lieutenant John Luna says Alcaraz-Garnica was accused of groping a woman in her 20s. When the woman’s boyfriend confronted him, a fight broke out. Luna says during the altercation the suspect bit off the tip of one of the boyfriend’s fingers.
Alcaraz-Garnica was being held in lieu of US$100,000 bail. It isn’t known if he has a lawyer.
Police say 10 other people were arrested during Saturday’s concert, which drew about 55,000 fans.
A second concert was held Sunday.
