Akon Pleads Guilty In Fan-Tossing Case

Remember that video of Akon throwing a fan into the crowd last year? Well it seems it’s gotten the Senegalese singer into a spot of trouble – not as much as it could have, however. Check out the report below via Billboard.com:

Hip-hop star Akon is pleading guilty to harassment after he tossed a fan off stage at a concert last summer. He will serve no jail time as long he performs 65 hours of community service and pays a $250 fine.

Akon declined comment as he left court in Fishkill, N.Y.

The Senegalese-American singer, born Aliaune Thiam, was accused of picking up a teenage boy and throwing him off the stage during a June 2007 concert at a minor league baseball stadium near Poughkeepsie. Another concertgoer said she suffered a concussion when the teen landed on her.

With teen-grinding and fan-tossing being just a few of the controversies Akon has been able to escape(ish), here’s hoping he uses his brain a bit more. SMH…

Any thoughts?

    All he got was community service and a $250 fine for pushing a fan offstage. When I watched the video, I thought Akon hit the girl. I do not think he knows how to treat women. I am surprise that nobody has sued him. If he threw me offstage after I tried to help him get on stage, then I would have sued him.
