Transcript for Fan arrested after rushing stage at Britney Spears concert
Now to that terrifying moment at a Britney spears concert in las Vegas. A fan rushes the stage as she's performing. Her quick thinking dancers and security guards jump into action and ABC's Diane Macedo has all the details for us. Good morning, Paula. This is quite a scare not only for Britney but the fans in the audience and the whole thing was caught on camera. This morning we not only have the video but now hearing from the suspect. ??? It was the moment that abruptly stopped the show. You guys having fun? Reporter: Britney spears performing her hit song "Crazy" in Las Vegas when a man from the crowd suddenly stormed the stage. Spears seemed shocked. At one point her knees physically buckle as she's heard asking if the man has a gun and the Stuart team rushes her off the stage. The stage crasher, 37-year-old Jesse Webb was pinned down by spears' backup dancers before being arrested. The Las Vegas police department tells ABC news Webb wasn't armed but he had been asked to leave the concert by security prior to him jumping on the stage. They should have had sufficient resources to make sure he did not get on stage as he did. Reporter: He is defending himself on Facebook. Writing just to clarify, no one was trying to attack Britney. I had no intention to approach her. The news blew this out of proportion. Reporter: Eventually spears returned to the stage and closed out the show.v Chill out. Reporter: Back in March a fan rushed the stage at an Ariana grande concert and similar incidents happening to Justin Bieber, Beyonce and Adam Levine. The fans are trying to get as close and possible and security needs to ensure nobody gets on stage and harms the entertainer. Reporter: Now, Webb went on in his Facebook statement to say he was just trying to dance 0 the taken because the ushers told him he couldn't do that from his seats. No response from the venue or spears but told she'll be back on stage performing tonight so, Paula, the show will go on. Interesting explanation there. You can't dance from your seat so you had to get on stage to show what you got. Does that say that on the ticket.
