Glee co-star Darren Criss was pulled offstage during a tour stop in Washington, D.C., on Thursday night.

Following a performance of “Somebody to Love,” the actor who plays Warblers singer Blaine on the Fox musical dramedy, was yanked off the front of the stage by a fan before immediately jumping back up and joining the rest of the cast for their closing bow.

The singer was a good sport, tweeting after the show to the woman who pulled him from the stage, “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.”

Criss, who will appear Sunday on Oxygen’s series premiere of The Glee Project, added that it was a close call and he came dangerously close to a gate between the crowd and the stage.

“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.”

Check out the video – the intense Warblers fan incident is around the 5:40 mark.
