Brent Smith joined the Shinedown security team during a July 22 show in Toronto and helped break up a fight in the crowd.

In the fan-shoot footage below, Smith is seen addressing the people fighting in the crowd, which then leads to the Shinedown singer jumping off the stage, hopping the barricade and confronting the fighting fans himself.

The tense moment died down, and Smith returned to the stage. It appears the instigator left the area, but the fan who experienced the unnecessary assault and his two friends were led through the crowd by Smith, who told security to let them watch the next few songs from the side of the stage.

Kudos to Smith for recognizing and diffusing the situation to help make for a safer concert experience!
