During his show at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Bash/Volunteer Jam last night, Luke Bryan stopped performing briefly to and hit a man in the face.

Based on the video, it looks like the guy in the front row shouted something at Luke and flipped him off before he hopped down from the stage to smack the guy.

Luke Bryan’s team has issued about the incident:

A man in [the] 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 he was escorted out.”
