Madison Beer performs at BottleRock Napa Valley 2019 on Day 2 at Napa Valley Expo on May 24, 2019 in Napa, Calif.

Madison Beer was forced to stop her performance mid-song at BottleRock in Napa Valley on Saturday (May 25) after what police are calling a "minor disturbance."

A fan account on Twitter shared a video of Beer covering Radiohead's "Creep" before stopping and urging the crowd to "back up." Screams can be heard in the background as the crowd begins to panic.   

There were rumors that a man in the crowd had pulled out a gun, however, a Napa PD spokesperson told Us Weekly that wasn't the case, saying, "There was a minor disturbance at the Bai Stage during the Napa Valley BottleRock concert on Saturday. There was a disturbance, at 5:45 pm, but no weapon was involved and no one was injured. The man who caused the disturbance was removed from the grounds, there was no threat to the community."

Meanwhile, Beer's mother Tracie took to Instagram to comment on the incident, writing, "As a parent all you want to do is protect your children. Is so disturbing to me that the world we’re living in has made us has feel the need to have to always be aware of our surroundings. Looking over your shoulder in public places such as a concert where you’d like to feel free & distress from life’s worries seems so sad to me... but this is the world we live in unfortunately. I wish there was a bubble I can put around my kids to shield them. Last nights scare truly was disturbing & unsettling. My thoughts, prays & love to anyone that was in the crowd."
