When you’re Daryl Dixon, you’ve always got to be on your guard. You must be alert at all times, or else a Walker could come out of nowhere and with one chomp effectively end your life. You could say this is the moment Norman Reedus has been training for these last six years….a fan tried to bite him.
TMZ reports that during a meet-and-greet event at New Jersey’s Walker Stalker Con, an overzealous fan approached Reedus and bit him in the chest. Reedus was taken aback for a few seconds, but since the bite didn’t break his skin, he decided not to seek medical attention.
The incident resulted in the woman getting banned from Walker Stalker Con 2015 and all future TWD-themed events where Reedus is present. She later tried to explain her actions on her Instagram account: “”Finally met the love of my life, and get banned from the rest of the CON and lose two more $100 photo ops with him because I lost my mind… got so excited standing beside him… and just turned my head and bit him!” Happens to the best of us.
“I don’t know what came over me. It wasn’t my intention to hurt him. I’m sorry, Norman!” He’s not pressing charges.
