Britney Spears flees after man rushes her onstage

Britney Spears was left shaken Wednesday after a man rushed her onstage. The 35-year-old singer was ushered offstage after security apprehended a man mid-performance at her Piece of Meresidency show in Las Vegas.

Spears was finishing her song “(You Drive Me) Crazy” when a fan crept onstage and rushed toward her. She initially didn’t realize the man was behind her, asking the audience, “Are you guys having fun?”

Video of the incident shows Spears asking, “Is everything okay? What’s going on?” as she notices the commotion. Her knees buckle as she clutches a security guard and asks, “He’s got a gun?” before being taken offstage.

The man was subdued and ejected from the concert after struggling with security. The man, 37-year-old Jess Webb, was arrested for trespassing.

The show marked Spears’ return to The Axis at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas following a near three-month hiatus. Spears will continue her Piece of Me residency show through December.
