At a concert in Washington recently, Tim McGraw removed a fan from the audience. Tim McGraw's staff explained his actions in a statement:
"A man rush[ed] 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. He was then turned over to the local authorities."
A year ago, Tim's wife Faith Hill was upset at a fan who grabbed her husband. She said, "Somebody needs to teach you some class, my friend. You don't go grabbin' somebody else's, somebody's husband's balls, you understand me? That's very disrespectful!"
