JAKE OWEN was on stage in Fort Wayne, Indiana last Thursday when he saw a guy in the audience HIT a woman.  He stopped the show and had the guy tossed.


Someone posted a video showing Jake right after it happened . . . and it sounds like he wanted to jump off the stage and give him a taste of his own medicine.  He said, quote, "That guy's lucky as [crap]. I got a guitar and a microphone in my hand.  I'll tell you right now.  If you're a man and you touch a woman, you're a bad human being, man."  


(Here's the YouTube video.  WARNING: He says the S-word.)
