On Wednesday, CBS Sacramento reported that 56-year-old Social Distortion frontman Mike Ness allegedly jumped off stage during a performance and assaulted Tim Hildebrand, a long-time fan who describes himself as a “Republican farmer.”

According to CBS:

A Trump supporter claims he was attacked by the lead singer of a punk rock band when he jeered the frontman’s political statements.

Tim Hildebrand of Galt says the attack happened at a Social Distortion concert at the Ace of Spades in Midtown. Hildebrand says he grew up listening to the band’s music and was excited to attend one of their shows, but never thought he’d leave bloody and bruised at the hands of a famous musician.

Cellphone video taken at the concert captures the moment the Social Distortion fan says he was beaten up by the band’s frontman, 56-year-old Mike Ness.

Here’s one video taken of the incident:

“I wasn’t able to defend myself because people in the crowd were holding me back,” Hildebrand said.

The CBS report said the singer gave Hildebrand two black eyes, a busted lip, a concussion and almost knocked out one of his teeth.

“I pretty much said I paid for your music, not your politics,” Hildebrand recalled.

The CBS report further noted:

Hildebrand says the singer started badmouthing President Trump and America and the Republican farmer from Galt didn’t like it.

“I stood pretty much with my silent protest with my middle finger up for the next two songs.”

Ness didn’t like that and in the video, you can see him motion Hildebrand to the stage, where the singer spits in his face. Hildebrand says the two were yelling at each other when Ness lunged toward him.

“Takes his guitar off, jumps off the stage and proceeds to punch me multiple times in the head.”

The lifelong fan said he was dragged out of the venue by security, filed a police report and intends to press charges.

“Someone that has the status that he does shouldn’t get away with assaulting someone,” he said.

Hildebrand said he wants the punk rocker to pay for what he did.

“If he wants to have a talk someday, man to man, I would love that but he would have to not be a child about it,” he said.

Sacramento Police reportedly say they are investigating the incident.  The band manager said the group has no comment.
