A fan rushed the stage during a Beyonce and Jay-Z concert in Atlanta over the weekend.
An Atlanta police officer told the Associated Press that the man was initially issued with a citation for disorderly conduct and released, but police added a charge of simple battery.
Anthony Charles Thomas Maxwell approached Jay-Z and made contact as the “On the Run II” concert was ending.
Maxwell was quickly stopped by backup dancers before security guards could intervene. Here are the funniest reactions.

Have respect for performers especially their security. What happened in Atlanta on stage for #OTRII was scary.
Do remember that performers are humans after all. They’re paid to entertain, not to get hurt.
I have to applaud Beyoncé’s dancers for protecting her as she left.
