Fan bites Norman Reedus at Walker Stalker Con

Norman Reedus is lucky he didn't turn into a walker after a fan bit his chest at a convention.

A female fan had her chance to take a photo with the "Walking Dead" actor at the Walker Stalker Con, but she was promptly escorted out after she bit the star -- not before she got a photo, though.

The interaction started off innocently enough (well, kind of), with the fan telling Reedus that she likes to pretend she's married to him. She had tickets to take photos with him and co-star Michael Rooker, reports Yahoo and a "Walking Dead" fan blog. Then, she went in for the bite.

The blog reports that Rooker yelled "What the f**k was that?!" and security removed the woman from the convention and banned her from future conventions. A screenshot of the woman's purported Instagram from the con says, "Finally meet 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 ... & just turned my head and bit him! I don't know what came over me. It wasn't my intention to hurt him. I'm sorry Norman!"

The Instagram user, harleygurl68, has since scrubbed her Instagram account and only links out to Reedus' Instagram and a Facebook page called "THIS BITCH OWNS HER OWN BIKE."

Reedus declined to press charges and was not seriously hurt from the bite, but he did make light of the situation on his own Instagram account. He posted a photo of himself in a shirt with writing over it that read, "DO NOT BITE ME." In the caption, the actor wrote, "Um please don't." Maybe he needs to bring his crossbow with him to the next Walker Stalker Con.

Um please don't 💃🏿
