Tim McGraw 'Swatted' a Fan During Show, Rep Says

(Atlanta-WILX) A rep for country singer Tim McGraw says the singer 'swatted' a fan at a concert last weekend in Atlanta.

TMZ.com has posted two video's of the incident. McGraw is seen walking,singing, and interacting with fans on a catwalk as he performs "Truck Yeah" At one point a fan, grabs his leg, appears to not let him go, that's when he is seen in the grainy video, slapping her. She is then quickly taken away by security.

The singers rep is placing blame on the fan, and issued this statement.
" At the end of the night during the encore, Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn't let go as he was moving through the crowd, He instinctively swatted to try and keep them from ripping his jeas (which they succeeded at doing), and so he could get to more fans who were trying to slap hands with him before the end of the show. He didn't know who had grabbed him and was trying to keep his pants from being torn"

McGraw is headlining the Faster Horses Festival tonight on the grounds of Michigan International Speedway.
