Steven Tyler -- Fury After Friend Put in Choke Hold

8/25/2010 8:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler was furious last night -- lashing out at a rowdy group of autograph seekers after a shoving match broke out ... and one of Tyler's "guys" was choked out.

The insanity began when Tyler arrived at the Trump Hotel in New York -- and was instantly rushed by the aggressive autograph hounds.

When Tyler's associate began to shove back ... someone reached in from behind and started to choke him out.

Tyler instantly broke up the mess, restored calm ... and then proceeded to lecture the group about standard protocol for autograph seeking.

Tyler and his friend were then escorted into the building by security.

this tranny looking fossil should just go away and never return.

American Idol will lose millions and millions of watchers if they have this ugly street hooker dude on their show.

Some of these fans were rude and pushy. I think the body guard did the right thing.

Did you see him reach out and push the camera. I think that explains who was pushing.

At the end of the video Tyler threatens to kick someones ass, LOL. Even at 1,000 years old he's still ready to brawl. Love Aerosmith! Hopefully Idol dies after this season. The show sucked from the start.

Seriously, that guy looks insane who choked out Steven's bodyguard. He should have been arrested immediately. There was no reason for him to even be provoked into doing that.
Steve know you are a super nice guy but come on, unless they are acting proper, nice, orderly, do NOT sign any autographs except maybe for a little kid there. Screw the rest of them that is insane.
