Life Imitates Art: Norman Reedus Bitten by 'Walking Dead' Fan at Zombie Convention

No chill whatsoever.

A female fan at a recent zombie convention apparently got so stoked on seeing The Walking Dead’s confirmed rock starNorman Reedus​, a.k.a. Daryl Dixon, that she actually bit him. Reedus generously declined to press charges against the fan because it was "only a nibble," TMZ reports. A spokesperson for the Walker Stalker Con in New Jersey says event security intervened when a fan "opened her mouth and tried to take a chunk out of his chest," promptly booting the fan from the proceedings.

Reedus, who wasn’t hurt and was able to continue a scheduled meet-and-greet event, quickly took to the 'gram to have a little fun with the story in the most Reedus way possible:

As previously reported, Reedus just got another vote of superstar confidence from the AMC powers that be with the acquisition of the tentatively titled Ride With Norman Reedus, a reality series centered on riding (a motorcycle) with Norman Reedus across the United States. Each episode features Reedus cruising around with a guest and exploring a variety of "bike shops, tattoo parlors, bars, and restaurants frequented by chopper enthusiasts." Presumably, no humans were bitten during the filming of that series.
