Yikes. The East Bay's Prince-mania took a decidedly ugly turn on Wednesday night when a man was beaten by other concertgoers after catching a guitar His Purpleness threw into the crowd. According to KGO, Perry Litchfield says after he caught the guitar, "the crowd mobbed him and he has the scratches on his knuckles and back to prove it."

The worst part, though? After all that, he didn't even get to keep the guitar: The whole thing was apparently just a stunt, and all Litchfield got for his troubles was a guitar pick. He, unsurprisingly, wants the guitar back.

Watch the KGO report here:
