Some Nutty "Walking Dead" Fan Bit Norman Reedus

On AMC's "The Walking Dead," many a hungry zombie has received a crossbow arrow to head after a attempting to bite Norman Reedus' character, Daryl Dixon. But that didn't stop one -- dare we say diehard -- fan from sinking her teeth into the actor at the Walker Stalker Con in New Jersey over the weekend.

As reported by Vulture, a woman experienced such severe fandom while meeting Reedus that she pulled a walker and bit him in the chest during a photo op. Fortunately, the actor was not harmed and, most importantly, he did not "turn" into a zombie. He also didn't press charges against the fan, per the report. Instead, Reedus shared a humorous post on Instagram after the incident, because he's as badass in real life as he is on the show:

But really, everyone should know not to mess with Daryl.
