It was Tim McGraw versus an unruly fan right in the middle of 'Indian Outlaw' Tuesday night at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn, Wash. During McGraw's performance of his 1994 hit, he spotted a man in the audience getting reckless. So, with a little help from his crew, he pulled the man on stage and then shoved him. The man went after McGraw with a clinched fist, and both threatened to throw punches. McGraw's rep says the country star was only trying to protect a lady in the front row.

"While Tim was performing . . . he watched a man rush to the front of the stage," the rep told TMZ. "This overly aggressive fan attacked a female fan and Tim witnessed this incident. Tim called for security, but when they could not respond quick enough, Tim and several crew members removed the fan from the audience, then turned over to the local authorities."
