Akon charged over fan-throwing incident

akongirls-chargephotos-tpain.jpgR&B star Akon has been charged over an incident which saw him throw a fan into the audience during a gig.

The Smack That hitmaker is set to appear in court charged with a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a minor and second-degree harassment in connection with the controversial concert which took place in New York in June.

Akon was performing in Fishkill when an audience member threw an object at him, with the singer insisting security brought the culprit to the stage. Akon then hoisted the teenager onto his shoulders and threw him back into the audience. The human missile landed on another teenager who later claimed she had been diagnosed with concussion, according to

Police have been investigating the incident since the summer and have now found enough evidence to press criminal charges against the star, who will appear in court in Fishkill on Monday to face an arraignment hearing.

It isn't the first time Akon has faced controversy over his behavior at his concerts. In May he was heavily criticized for dancing with an underage female fan on stage and in October a show at Atlanta's Emeroy University had to be canceled after several people were injured while setting up for the gig.
