Tim McGraw boots redneck, sorry, fan, from his concert for harassing a woman. Axl Rose laughs at how Tim handles a bad fan.

A statement issued by representatives from Tim McGraw’s management:

“While Tim was performing at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn, Washington last night, he watched a man rush to the front of the stage. This overly aggressive fan attacked a female fan and Tim witnessed this incident. Tim called for security, but when they could not respond quick enough Tim and several crew members removed the fan from the audience where he was then turned over to the local authorities.”

That dude is no small emo boy, either, quite a sizable redneck. Tim handled it rather well, all things considered.

Now, here’s how you handle an unruly fan, a classic demonstration by Axl Rose, lead singer of Guns’N Roses. During a show in St. Louis in 1991, Rose became irate because a fan in the crowd was taking his picture. Rose asked security to remove the fan and or camera, and when they didn’t move quick enough, he jumped into the crowd to handle the situation. You can see a few blows exchanged, and then the situation just goes haywire.
