A Medford man faces an assault charge after allegedly throwing a fit in the concession stand line during Tuesday's Madonna concert at TD Garden in Boston.

Jeffrey Jansen, 37, was waiting in line at an alcohol-serving concession Tuesday night when he apparently began to grow impatient, according to a press release from the Suffolk County Attorney's office.

According to the district attorney, Jansen told the bartender, "If you take her first," referring to the woman in front of him in line, "I swear to God I will pound someone’s face in."

When the bartender served the woman, Jansen allegedly yelled and took a swing at the bartender's tap handle, which flew off and lacerated the woman's face, according to the press release. The woman, a 34-year-old from Wellesley, had to be treated for injuries at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Jansen was arraigned before Judge Annette Forde in Boston District Court Wednesday where bail was set at $500. He was also ordered to stay away from the victim and the TD Garden.  He is scheduled to return to court Oct. 4.
