Fargo police say the Fargodome crowd at Saturday night's Bon Jovi concert was overall well-behaved, but there were some issues.

In one case, a man was arrested after taking a swing at a police officer.

Paul Fonder, of Aberdeen, South Dakota, and his wife were asked to leave by Fargodome staff after they became intoxicated.

When they resisted, a Fargo police officer got involved, escorting them outside. Once outside, police say the man turned and swung at the officer, who was able to miss most of the punch, but contact was made.

Fonder was arrested for assault on a police officer.

An estimated crowd of 23,000 attended the Bon Jovi concert.

Glad the officer was able to deflect most of the punch, speedy and swift recovery.
