Country singer Tim McGraw was in the middle of performing in front of an audience when a woman grabbed his leg. He responded by slapping her across the face.

In video footage of the Atlanta concert on Sunday, McGraw sings “Truck Yeah” during a late night encore as he makes his way through the audience.

At the 44 second mark in one video of the incident, a woman can be seen gripping her hand onto McGraw’s leg and then inching upward.

At 50 seconds, McGraw slaps the woman.

“Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn’t let go,” a representative for McGraw said. “He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans.”

McGraw’s representative added that the singer wanted to continue through the crowd so he could get to as many fans as possible before the show’s end.

“He didn’t know who had grabbed him and was simply trying to keep his jeans from being torn,” the representative said.

Shortly after, it appears in the footage that a security guard approaches the woman.
