Akon Caught 'Fan-Throwing' Again
The Smack That hit-maker has been charged with one misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a minor and one count of second-degree harassment, after allegedly throwing a fan into the crowd during a concert in Fishkill, New York in June 2007. The unnamed 15-year-old landed on another teenager, who later claimed she had been diagnosed with a concussion.
Akon - real name Aliaune Thiam - maintains he is innocent and appeared for a brief hearing at Fishkill Town Court on Wednesday to ask a judge to grant his request for a jury trial.
However, videographers caught the singer on camera performing a similar stunt at a packed show in Guayana, South America on Saturday. In the video, the star is seen stage diving into the crowd. As he makes his way over excited revelers he returns to stage to find two young female fans dancing there.
The footage shows the star grabbing one of the girls and pushing her into the crowd on top of revelers underneath. The star then grabs the other fan and does the same with her.
Akon will be back in court over the original "fan-throwing" incident on December 1st, unless a deal is reached before then.
UPDATE: New Video Proves Akon Didn't Attack Fans
