A 33-year-old man in Madison, Wisconsin was arrested after he threw a beer bottle at a bartender who changed music in the bar from BLACK SABBATH to a Christmas song, police said in a press release posted Monday.
The incident happened at about 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve at the Farm Tavern.
“He got upset when the bartender changed the music from BLACK SABBATH to Christmas music,” said police spokesman Officer Howard Payne.
Gamboeck allegedly downed his bottle of beer, slammed it on the bar, yelled expletives at the bartender and threw the bottle in the direction of her head.
“Other patrons stepped in to keep him from going behind the bar,” Payne said. “His uncle intervened and directed him to the exit door, but not until Gamboeck allegedly grabbed the bar’s Christmas tree and pulled it down.”
Officers called to the bar found Gamboeck at his residence.
“As they approached him, he became incensed about police being there,” Payne said. “He rushed toward the officers and had to be threatened with an electronic device before taken into custody.”
Gamboeck is facing disorderly conduct and criminal damage to property charges.
