    The fan jumped on the stage and ran up to Fat Mike, putting his arm around the rocker from the side.

    Mike didn't take too kindly to this interruption and punched the fan in the face, then kicking him on the ground.

    The fan was dragged off stage by security and NOFX continued with their performance.

    Following the incident, Mike tweeted out apologising to the fan, and offering to buy him a beer.

    Alex, if you go to the show on friday I'll buy you a beer. Just don't throw it at me alright?
