What a night!
The premiere of “Dancing with the Stars” season 23 definitely brought the drama following Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte’s performance.
After a performance with partner, Cheryl Burke, Lochte had to think quickly on his feet when he was nearly attacked by a man who rushed the stage.
Judge Carrie Ann Inaba was in the middle of her critiques when the man tried to attack Lochte.
“Excuse me! Hey! Back off!” she screamed as security approached the man.
Host Tom Bergeron quickly cut to commercial as things started to settle down.
Jessica Radloff of Glamour Magazine tweeted this in response to the disruption.
When the show returned from break, Lochte addressed the incident.
“So many feelings going through my head right now. A little hurt,” he explained.
There is no word yet about why the attack on Lochte occurred.
