Egging a Cop No Way to Get in Beyonce Video

And yet, police say that's what one guy tried

As the song goes, if you like it then you should have put an egg on it. That is the lyric, right? No?


South Brunswick police say things went a little rotten when a ... let's call him an enthusiastic fan ... just wouldn't stay away from a mobile home park where Beyonce was shooting a new music video.

The man was first asked to leave the set of the video by the mobile home community's staff after he was yelling and acting out, police said. They said he appeared intoxicated, but friends agreed to drive him home.

"At first he was yelling that he wanted to be in the video and shouted that he was a better dancer," South Brunswick Police spokesman Sgt. Jim Ryan said.

But the man came back a few hours later ... and was promptly driven home by officers—about a 5-mile drive, police said.

So it might have been a surprise when a few hours after that, the man was spotted on site once again—this time right after he threw an egg on an officer working the detail, police said. The man allegedly took off running, but was tackled by an officer.

Officers investigated further and found the two who'd been seeking help were wanted on warrants—one for $10,000. Police say that as though that wasn't bad enough, they searched the pair's car and found drugs and paraphernalia.
