Tim McGraw Fight
Tim McGraw had a fan ejected during his June 24 concert in Auburn, Washington. While performing “Indian Outlaw” MGraw yelled, “Get rid of this guy! Security!”, knelt down and began pulling the man onstage. After a near altercation, the fan was ejected by security.
In a prepared statement issued June 25, McGraw’s publicist, Jessie Schmidt said, “While Tim was performing at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn, Wash., 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.”
The fan has been identified as Marcus Nirshl of Kent, Washington. “I had a third row seat I paid $120 for,” Nirschl told CMT.com during an interview Thursday (June 26). “And I was just making my way up to my seat because I wanted to be up there when he started ‘Indian Outlaw.’ I was getting shoved up against some empty seats, and I may have pushed some people when I was trying to get my balance. But I didn’t grab nobody’s hair, and I didn’t hit nobody. I’m the nicest guy you’ll ever meet.”
