LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man who bit off a fingertip during a fight at a Rose Bowl concert in Pasadena has pleaded no contest to mayhem.

Twenty-five-year-old Roberto Garnica of San Diego entered the plea on Tuesday. He was sentenced to 40 days in county jail, 30 days of community service and a year of anger management classes.

Garnica could have faced up to eight years in state prison if convicted at trial of mayhem and battery.

Authorities say Garnica was at a concert featuring Beyonce and Jay Z last August when he pushed a woman into some chairs, sparking a fight with her husband.

Authorities say Garnica punched the man and bit off the tip of his left index finger.
