Luke Bryan punches concertgoer during Nashville gig

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Country singer Luke Bryan punch an audience member at a concert in Nashville.

The 40-year-old singer was performing as part of Charlie Daniels's 80th birthday/Volunteer Jam when a fan made his way to right in front of the stage and started acting unruly, reported Hollywoodlife.Com.

A Twitter user uploaded footage of the moment Bryan punched the fan. The clip shows Bryan performing his hit "Move" when a guy in the front row apparently grabbed his attention. He can be seen getting into some kind of physical altercation with another guy close to the stage.

After the video went viral on social media, Bryan's representative explained the incident.

"A man in front row was making crude hand gestures toward Luke during his performance. It was insulting not only to him, but more importantly to the men, women and families sitting around him who were there to support and celebrate Charlie Daniels and the efforts of raising money for the military veterans - some of who were in the audience.

"The concert security personnel saw the man's disruptive actions of the event and was escorted out," the representative said.
