A Billy Joel fan is suing bosses at fabled New York venue Madison Square Garden for overserving alcohol to a bunch of rowdy concertgoers.

Ari Ganales claims he was left battered, bloodied and bruised when he got caught up in the middle of a fight between the drunk patrons at a recent Joel show.

In his legal papers, obtained by Tmz.com, Ganales claims he was pulled over a seat and beaten up by one of the hooligans. He states he suffered a broken arm, nose, ribs and other injuries.

He and his wife are suing the venue bosses for compensation.
