ORIGINAL STORY

Sometimes things just get crazy at Britney Spears' shows in Las Vegas.

For example, a fan rushed the stage during Wednesday night's performance and was tackled by security.

No one is quite sure what the man's intentions were when they ran on stage, but security guards weren't going to wait and see. Several guards sprung into action and jumped on the fan before he was able to get to Britney.

According to TMZ, Britney's knee could be seen buckling during the incident and she asked a security guard if the man had a gun.

Spears was rushed backstage, but later came out to finish the show.

 


The incident happened while Britney was performing during the song "Crazy." Spears performs at Planet Hollywood on the Las Vegas Strip. Wednesday night's performance was the first since she took a break during the summer to tour in Asia.
