Apparently, some of Britney Spears’s dancers also moonlight as strong bodyguards who are willing to do anything to protect their queen. On Wednesday, an uninvited guest briefly interrupted Britney’s “Piece of Me” show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. As shown in fan footage obtained by TMZ, the incident happened right after Britney performed “(You Drive Me) Crazy.” Britney, seemingly unaware of the incident at first, proceeded to ask her fans if they were having fun, as one does after singing and dancing up a storm. In a matter of seconds, Britney’s security detail can be seen surrounding her as her dancers subdue the man nearby. As TMZ puts it, Britney’s knees “buckled” as soon as she realized a stranger had gotten on her stage. She can also be heard asking one of the security guards, “He’s got a gun?”
On Thursday, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police confirmed to E! News that Jesse Webb, 37, has since been arrested for trespassing. “Webb was asked to leave the concert by security prior to him jumping on stage and dancing,” officer Larry Hadfield told E!. “Webb was transported to the Clark County Detention Center. There is no further information regarding this arrest.” According to TMZ, no weapons were found on Webb at the time of his arrest.
Britney, who returned to the Vegas stage Wednesday after summer break, is scheduled to continue her “Piece of Me” residency Friday. As previously announced, her Planet Hollywood residency will end Dec. 31 following four years of shows.
