Fans at a West Hollywood appearance by Jared's band, 30 Seconds to Mars, tell TMZ the man rushed the door of the building with a package in his hands.

Witnesses say the man called out Jared by name, and then said something about having explosives.

We're told a member of the band and security tackled the man until police came and arrested him.

LAPD cleared Melrose Avenue to check the box and the suspect's car -- which he had parked in the middle of the street. Cops say there was no bomb in the box -- just candy and a blender.

The man is in custody and police tell us they suspect he is mentally unstable.
