Crazy Drunk Cher Fan a Little Too Zealous

6/25/2008 3:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don't you know you can't touch the Cher! An overzealous fan got a little too close for Miss Thing's comfort early this morning in Nashville, and cops took him down.
Click to read the Documents!
Cops say 36-year-old Calvin Houghland was drinking a bit too much last night at some place called "The World Famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge" when he started harassing Cher and, at one point, tried grabbing the 62-year-old diva. More importantly, what the hell was Cher doing at The World Famous Tootsies Orchid Lounge?!

That's when cops kicked Houghland out of Tootsies, telling him to get lost. He was arrested around 1:00 AM after he kept going back to the club. He's been charged with public intoxication and disorderly conduct, and is currently cooling his heels in the slammer awaiting release on $3,000 bond.

UPDATE: Thanks to our legal and business affairs department, we are now aware that Tootsies is some sort of legendary country dive. Our bad.

Look at Cher's right eye. The highlight in the center of her upper eyelid is clearly a camel. Is she hyping cigarettes or is she a Muslim?

Hmmn, maybe "If I Could Turn Back Time" is really a terrorist plot to bring the US back to the dark ages?

Americans tend to have no real sense of talent. So many of your "famous" people have nothing to offer. Case in point: Cher. The woman is simply a wretched singer, yet is idolized by millions. All the real talent of the world comes from Europe. All the best actors and singers. No wonder you are the laughing stock of the world.

Mr. Londoner - That was a mistake to say that we are not good performers. We are the ones who give most of you in the USA your starts. Dont be rude and i hope your comment is flagged. Re-read what you wrote please.
And maybe if you ever want a job,we in the USA will say "no" cause we dont take your idiotic criticism well either. Have a "idiotic" day.

Tootsie's is a pretty awesome place, but I can't imagine a Super-Start in there. The place is ALWAYS packed 300+ deep, standing room only. I've been there several times and it just doesn't seem like a place Cher would wanna hang out. Its not the most classy establishment in the world, that's for sure!

She is 62 and looks great, Yes, I would, in less than a second! She is richer than stink, a true A list Diva, and she does as she pleases. Paris Hilton, ..... take notes.

Tootsie's is a great place with a lot of history located on Broadway in Nashville. You can walk in there at any night or during the day and you never know who will be singing from Rock to Country..great place to go..much much fun!
