Lady Gaga was walking through a hotel lobby in Romania today when a fan ran up to get an autograph. It was a very very bad idea.
The guy (who looks exactly like what you think a guy who wants a Lady Gaga autograph would look like) brought a notebook, whereas her bodyguards brought pushing punching choking tackling and kicking. And pushing punching choking tackling and kicking > notebook.
Was it overkill? Perhaps. But Romania does have werewolves, which are very scary, and someone could be a werewolf and you wouldn't even know it so you can't take any chances.
