Jay-Z and Beyonce may have made a decision to not press charges after a man rushed the stage during their Atlanta show on August 25, but Atlanta Police have now hit the man with a few charges of their own.

The footage, shared from several different angles, showed a drunk fan in a white t-shirt as he bumrushed the stage after the couple completed the night with a performance of their hit single "Apeshit" from their joint album, Everything Is Love.

"At the end of last night's show, we had an intoxicated man enter the stage".

A wayward fan suffered the wrath of Beyonce's backup dancers who put paws on him when he stormed the stage in order to get closer to Queen Bey.

They also thanked the security team at the venue and the backing dancers who caught up to the man before he could reach Beyoncé and Jay-Z.

Beyonce's spokeswoman Yvette Noel-Schure said the singer and Jay-Z are fine.

Bender says Maxwell was initially issued a citation for disorderly conduct and released, but police have added a charge of simple battery. "We are happy to confirm that nobody was hurt during the incident, and Mr. and Mrs. Carter are choosing not to press charges against the individual", it read.

Upon realising that Beyonce, 36, and Jay-Z, 48, was mere inches away from the stage invader, several costumed dancers rushed to apprehend the man, who was tackled to the floor by security.
