DJ Pauly D

Mobbed at Gig in South Padre

Extra Security Called In

3/24/2012 8:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DJ Pauly D
feared for his safety during a gig last night in South Padre Island and extra security (along with local police) had to be called to control the massive crowd ... TMZ has learned. 

Sources close to Pauly D tell TMZ his team became worried very early on last night that the venue, Louie's Backyard, was not properly equipped to handle the crowd. We're told Pauly D was assured extra security was being brought in to help out. 

According to our sources, the stage Pauly D performed on was supposed to have a few feet of room between it and the fans. But as you can see from the photo above, that didn't happen and the stage became surrounded ... with some fans even trying to climb the stage. 

When it came time to leave, our sources say Pauly D had to be escorted out by about 15 security personnel and police, and he still had his shirt ripped by the mob of fans. 

Calls to the club and the South Padre Island Police Department were not returned.

WTF has happened to the USA when someone who picks songs to play at a party becomes a big celebrity? It's sick.

I don't think those are adoring fans. I think they wanted to make it stop.

South Padre is the Texas version of the Jersey Shore. He is basically Cousin Pauly down there.

I've always wondered what these mobs of "fans" would do if they actually got a hold of the celebrity they're after. Would they tear him limb from limb or what?

First off, just putting the letters DJ in front of your name doesn't make you a DJ. I played music at our fraternity parties at times. I'm no more of a DJ than he is.
Second, it's south padre island on spring break. These people were there to get drunk and party, not to see this douche. Had he not been there, the people would still show up. So this guy is not a draw at all. Reminds me of Paul Jr on American choppers. He's there to unveil a bike but it just happens to be at a Motley Crue concert. Come on man, those people bought the tickets long before you were ever begging to use that venue to unveil your bike. Or like Obamma taking credit for the pipeline that doesn't need his approval to be build in the southern United States.
