Ashton Kutcher and security guard 'get into shoving match at Stagecoach Music Festival'
Ashton Kutcher almost found himself in a good 'ol fashioned country brawl.
According to TMZ, the 35-year-old actor and producer got into a violent shoving match with a security guard Saturday evening at the Stagecoach Music Festival, an outdoor country music concert held on the Indio Polo Grounds, the exact same location two raucous weekends of Coachella were held weeks before.
Sources who witnessed the melee said it all started when a woman approached Kutcher in the VIP area while he was watching NIck 13 and Dwight Yoakam perform.

It went down right by the stage: Kutcher was in the VIP area beside the stage when the altercation began
When Kutcher walked over to greet the woman, a security guard stepped between them and pushed both the woman and the actor apart.
The Two and a Half Men star and the security guard allegedly continued to shove each other aggressively until Kutcher's friends separated them, restraining the lanky six-foot-two actor.
Apparently the security guard demanded that Kutcher be ejected, but the That 70s Show star left on his own.
The eyewitnesses who talked to TMZ said the actor was not the aggressor, but rather the victim of an overzealous and out-of-line security guy.
Hot enough for you? The temperature at the show topped 103 degrees, a far cry from what the actor experienced in the North of London just a week earlier

Kutcher had been at the Stagecoach Music Festival for most of the day, wearing a black Stetson and paling around with a friend in a Texas Longhorns football jersey.
The Butterfly Effect star shook hands with fans and walked around the VIP area back stage, trying to stay cool on the sweltering 103 degree spring day.
His body may not be acclimated to the extreme heat of the high desert.
Just a week before, the No Strings Attached actor was in London's Hampstead village with 29-year-old girlfriend Mila Kunis, who is filming the Wachowski's new science fiction film Jupiter Ascending.
Later this year, Kutcher will be in theaters everywhere in Jobs, the big screen biopic of Steve Jobs life.
