Anthony Charles Thomas Maxwell, 26, approached Jay-Z and made contact with him as the couple’s On the Run II concert was ending, the Atlanta Police Department confirmed to Us Weekly.
The man was quickly stopped by security guards and backup dancers, who could be seen running to help the rapper in videos posted on social media by concertgoers.
Beyoncé and her husband had just finished performing “Apes—t” at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium when the man, who was wearing a white top, ran up some steps near the stage and headed towards the couple as they walked to the back of the stage.
The Atlanta Police Department told Us that Maxwell, who was treated for minor injuries, was initially issued with a citation for disorderly conduct and released, but police later added a charge of simple battery.For the latest celebrity news and interviews, subscribe to our new podcast "In Case You Missed Us" below!
