In his own words, it was a “seriously close call” when a fan pulled Glee star Darren Criss off the stage during a live performance Saturday night.

Criss was performing on the Glee Live tour with his fellow castmates in Washington D.C. when an overzealous fan got a hold of him and dragged him off of the stage. In Criss’ words via Twitter:

“btw I’m lucky I didn’t hit my head on the gate in front of this lady. Seriously close call tonight… Like, please don’t kill me. I’m nice. … To the lady who pulled me off the stage and into the pit tonight: if I ever see you on a stage… keep your wits about ya. Love, Darren :) !”

Thankfully the lead Warbler emerged unscathed, and will be just fine for his upcoming shows — including the New York City solo show that Celebuzz is giving away tickets for
