Tim McGraw swatted a female fan with an open hand at his concert Sunday (July 13) in Atlanta. A video obtained by TMZ shows what happened. The footage shows McGraw walk out into the crowd as he sings “Truck Yeah.” About halfway through the clip, a woman is seen making contact with the country star and pulling him off balance. The video then captures him striking back. Watch it below (Mobile users click here.)

TMZ spoke to McGraw’s representative about the incident and got this statement:

“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,” the unidentified representative told the celebrity gossip web site. ”He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing!), and so he could get to more fans who could slap hands with him before the end of the show.”
