Rapper Kid Cudi had to fight off another stage invader during a concert in Ohio on Thursday (22Jul10) when one unruly fan attempted to attack the star.
The Day 'N Nite hitmaker was performing his song Pursuit of Happiness at an open-air event in his home state when a man ran past security men and threw himself at Cudi, knocking over a stage speaker in the process.
Guards chased after the assailant, prompting him to jump off the stage and escape into the crowd. Minutes later he was tackled and escorted off the premises as the hip-hop star ran to confront him, forcing security to step in and separate the two before any punches could be thrown.
Kid Cudi resumed his set after the incident.
The rapper previously came to blows with a fan at a show in Vancouver, Canada last year (09) when he leaped into the pit and hit out at Michael Sharpe, a man he suspected of throwing a wallet on stage during his performance.
Cudi later apologised to Sharpe and he recently brought his victim out onstage at the Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington to make amends for his previous mistake.
