Tim Scuffles With Rowdy Fan
Tim McGraw personally ejected a rowdy fan from his show in Auburn, Wash., Tuesday night, June 24, reports TMZ and people.com.
Tim was singing his hit “Indian Outlaw” when he noticed a large man causing a ruckus in the front row, allegedly striking a woman. Tim called for security, then stooped down and dragged the man onstage, where security guards took him away.
At one point, the two appeared ready to get into a full-fledged fight. “While Tim was performing at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn last night, he watched a man rush to the front of the stage,” one of Tim’s representatives told People. “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.”
A man calling himself “Marcus” called in to local radio station KKWF the following day claiming to be the ejectee. He denied that he had been misbehaving, and said he didn’t realize even after Tim pulled him onstage that there was any problem. “I was thinking, ‘Wow, I’m up onstage with Tim!’” he said.
