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.

We all should realize by now that when TMZ states that one guy "started it", it was the other dude.

I was out in palm desert last weekend, not for Coachella but staying at a hotel, and all the security jerks out in that dustbowl act like they're hard thugs that control everything. Its really quite ridiculous. Fact is they're just pathetic losers who only work a month out of the year when the music festivals roll into town. Minimum wage for maximum losers. This will be the story this "security guard" tells everyone he encounters for the rest of his life.

Please, please, please tell me that Ashton popped-off and said to the security guard something like : "Hey, dude! Like totally don't you know who I am dude?!" just before the security guard beat him senseless and told him: "You need to have your mom take you home now."
