SAN DIEGO (CelebrityAccess) — A man managed to get on stage during a Taylor Swift concert on Saturday night before being tackled four security guards.
The man, identified by police as 26-year-old Christian Ewing, managed to get into the sold-out show at Petco Park without a ticket. According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, some of Swift's tour security noticed that the man wasn't wearing a wrist band and physically detained him, but he managed to slip loose and jumped on stage. Four members of the security team then wrestled him to the ground. One of the security personnel broke a rib during the melee.
Swift showed no sign that she was aware of the on-stage scuffle and continued to perform her hit "Style."
Ewing is facing numerous charges, including felony battery causing serious bodily injury, felony battery against a police officer, felony obstructing or resisting an executive officer, misdemeanor battery, misdemeanor obstructing a public officer and two infractions — being a spectator in a prohibited area and entering a venue without a ticket, the Union-Tribune reported. – Staff Writers
