Monday night on Dancing With the Stars Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte was rushed on stage after finishing his foxtrot.

The incident started with judge Carrie Ann Inaba giving a critique when a bunch of booing erupted in the theater.

The screen was showing a replay of Lochte and his dance partner Cheryl Burke when Inaba started in with a series of: “excuse me! Hey, back off! Excuse me, excuse me. Off, off.”

There was the sound of some sort of scuffle out of picture when DWTS host Tom Bergeron took things to commercial.

When they came back to the show Bergeron expressed thanks to the security team and asked how the dancers were doing.  They are fine.

Police say the two male attackers had tickets to the show and changed clothes once inside that displayed anti Lochte phrases.

There were also four female attendees wearing similar shirts.
