Vince Neil tried to punch a fan during a concert in New Mexico last weekend.

In the video below, Vince tells someone in the front row to "Get the fk out of here," before taking a swing at them. It is not clear whether he made contact with them from the video.

TMZ reports that the fan had been trying to grab at Vince while he was singing which prompted his violent outburst.

A representative for the venue added:

"During the post-performance party at the property, the intoxicated fan and his group of friends, who were also visibly inebriated, returned and continually attempted to get close to Vince."

Security intercepted and escorted them from the property.

See the video and judge for yourself what happened here:

    It is, but it's so common that it really shouldn't be.
    Sorry, was supposed to be a reply to Iommi600's comment up there. Seriously, after the new layouts UG did a few months ago you think they would've added an edit button.
    Way Cool JR.
    I don't see what the problem is in the way he handled it. He was far from acting like a douchebag.
    I've been to shows where the bands let some of the fans gather around them on stage. So i call bullshit on this.
