Nothing can stop Taylor Swift on her 1989 tour, not even a mega-fan getting tackled by a group of security guards on stage while she's performing.

Four security guards took down the fervent fan, 26-year-old Christian Ewing, while Swift was in the middle of a performance at San Diego's Petco Park on Saturday, TMZ reports. It was such a bad scuffle that apparently one of the guards broke one of the fan's ribs after he dashed on stage. However, Tay-Tay just kept strutting down the stage and singing as if nothing happened, even though the guards were struggling with Ewing for quite some time. As they say in the biz, "The show must go on!"

Ewing was arrested and booked for felony and misdemeanor battery and obstruction, and is in jail in lieu of a $35,000 bail.
