Mike Ness of Social Distortion jumped off the stage to take care of a heckler. Naturally, there’s video.

You don’t mess with Mike Ness of Social Distortion. You just don’t. Ever.

Social D was in the middle of their set at Ace Spades in Sacramento back on July 19. Out in the audience was a persistent heckler who eventually got under Mike’s skin. After a while, Mike decided that he was going to take care of this guy. So he did.

Note the crowd was chanting “F**K HIM UP!”

As you can see from the video, Mike climbed back onstage after administering the beating and finished the gig. The heckler was thrown out and it doesn’t appear that anyone is in any legal trouble.
