Hootie --

Bodyguard TAKES OUT Crazy Fan

6/1/2011 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Like a jungle lion going after a kill ... Darius Rucker's musclebound security guard pounced on a fan who tried to rush the stage at a recent concert ... DROPPING the dude flat on his ass!!!

Hootie was performing a beautiful rendition of his song, "History in the Making" in Boca Raton a few weeks ago ... when some schmuck decided to try to rush the stage (around 1:17 in the clip).

Out of nowhere, a sleeveless security guy flies in, takes the fan out and throws him off the stage -- while Hootie never misses a beat.

Those Darius Rucker concerts ... OUTTA CONTROL!!!!

For the record Mr. or Mrs. "ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff" Hootie, is not Darius. Darius is Darius. The band is called Hootie and The Blowfish. They are two separate groups. Darius still does shows every now and then with Hootie and The Blowfish. Regardless of your opinion of the Darius Rucker show or the Hootie and The Blowfish show, before you voice your opinion, you might want to get your facts straight. That way you sound like "less" of an idiot. Currently, there is not very many people MORE relevant in Country music than Darius. Thanks for your misinformed opinion.

Darius is a country star now and quite talented at it. I can't believe that people can be so hateful to think that that was staged or that Darius can't sing. I've seen Darius several times while seeing Brad Paisley and security is always right there. I know it gets a little old, folks get drunk, dare people to do things and all that happens is they miss a great show. As for some of the rest of you theres no accounting for taste!!!
