Ashton Kutcher

In Violent Confrontation

at Stagecoach Music Festival

EXCLUSIVE

0427_ashton_kutcher_getty_2Ashton Kutcher got into a violent melee with security at Stagecoach -- a country music festival in Indio, CA -- after a security guard got physical with the actor and a fan ... TMZ has learned.

According to our sources, Kutcher was in the VIP area near the stage to check out Nick 13 and Dwight Yoakam ... when a woman approached him to say hi and shake his hand. We're told when Kutcher went to greet the woman, security intervened and shoved the two of them ... and chaos ensued.

Our sources say Kutcher and the security guard went at it, each violently shoving the other. Ashton's friends had to restrain him. We're told the guard demanded that Kutcher be ejected, but Ashton left on his own.

Eyewitnesses tell TMZ ... Ashton was NOT the aggressor. They say the security guard was overzealous and out of line.

We reached out to Kutcher's rep for comment ... so far, no word back.

I can't believe that they renewed Two and a half men for a another season, since the last episode GOT A SEASON LOW BOTH VIEWER WISE AND DEMOGRAPHIC 18-49.

security? lolol

give an egotistic, uneducated, little peckered, nobody a badge and watch chaos ensue. security is made up of cop wannabe's (and many cops meet can also be described by the above) and they get hard just pushing the rest of us around. they are the ones to fear! respect their authoritiiiiiii!

Violent shoving. Hum...exactly what part was violent? Was there eye poking? Did they shove each other placing the hands on the other's face or groin? Any rude verbiage with said shoving? Did Ashton ask the security guard, "do you know my name?" The world is on an exaggeration spin. Take every minor encounter and turn it into an frightening incident.

I love Ashton, but considering how stories are blown way out of proportion here, should we assume they were doing some serious sissy hand flapping, taking care not to break a nail?

Security guards usually are overly aggressive when things break out, not surprised.

Violent...What? "...went at it, each violently shoving the other." Really? It sounds like a pushing and shoving match. Lets not try and make Kutcher look tough, he's not.
