Police say they are pursuing more charges against a man who rushed onstage during a Beyonce and Jay-Z concert in Atlanta. That much is evidenced through the road blockage and major traffic congestion that permeated through every street surrounding the Mercedes-Benz Stadium downtown, and it was very apparent when a fan risked it all and rushed the stage Saturday night.

Beyoncé's backup dancers, however, were having none of it, and immediately sprung into action, chasing the man down. Per multiple fan videos posted on social media Saturday evening, a pretty scary scene unfolded when an unidentified man, upon the duo finishing their final song, "Apeshit", managed to get on stage and follow Bey and Jay. He was not taken into custody.

According to TMZ, Maxwell briefly made contact with JAY-Z, but neither JAY-Z nor Beyoncé were injured.

The "On The Run II" tour team released a statement saying the an "intoxicated male entered the stage".

The team thanked tour security and the dancers for how they handled the situation.

Bey's rep also assured fans that the couple was fine.

Fans reacted with shock to the incident with one concerned concert-goer taking to Twitter to ask: "The Beyhive is wondering, where in the world was security as the dancers were left to defend themselves as he pushed and ran on stage". "They are fine and looking forward to the show tomorrow [Sunday]", Noel-Schure said.

Bey and Jay are in the middle of their "On the Run II" tour, which returns for a second night in Atlanta on Sunday and continues through October 4 in Seattle.
