(Newser) – Tim McGraw took matters into his own hands when a rowdy fan got violent in the front row, TMZ reports. When McGraw saw the beefy man strike a woman during a concert in Washington state Tuesday night, he called for security while in mid-song, then reached down from the stage, and grabbed the guy.

McGraw and crew members pulled the offender up on stage, where he was hauled away. At one point, McGraw cocked his fist at the man, who tipped his cowboy hat to the audience. The band never stopped playing, and McGraw then resumed his song.
