LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Britney Spears was forced to take an abrupt intermission during her Las Vegas show when a man rushed the stage mid-performance.

The pop star was escorted off stage by security Wednesday night as her backup dancers tackled the fan, holding him down until security arrived.

The man, 37-year-old Jesse Webb, was arrested and charged with trespassing.

The show at Planet Hollywood later resumed.

It was the singer's first performance since taking a break for the summer to tour in Asia.
