Akon Charged in Crazy Stage Toss Incident

11/29/2007 9:41 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Akon! WTF? There's no need to throw a kid off the stage! Cops apparently agree and have now charged the R&B singer with misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a minor and second-degree harassment.


The charges stem from an incident last June in upstate NY when he was performing at a concert and someone in the crowd allegedly threw something at the singer on stage. Akon asked the crowd to point out the culprit. A security guard picked a 15-year-old out from the crowd and sent him up to the stage, where Akon hoisted him onto his shoulders and flung him into the crowd. Smack that! The kid landed on another teen who told the local paper she was later diagnosed with a concussion.

Akon is scheduled to appear in a local court on Monday for arraignment. Locked up!

i live in upstate New York and i was there at this concert with my son. Not only should Akon be charged, but so should the guard...they know better and Akon acted like he wanted to fight this kid, ripping off his shirt. I was less than 100 feet away -- it took my breath away and we left hte event shortly thereafter. He's a jerk.

He's Boring now    

Thank God Gwen Stefani and the Corporate Sponsor of her Tour got this clown off the bill.

Money talks loudest, and Corporate sponsors are wising up about just who they want to have their names next to and this nutjob isnt one of them they will endorse.

Now let the courts decide his fate. You hurt a kid, its usually not taken too lightly.

I can't believe he actually did that, yeah he's going to regret it big time when the law$uit hit$. Or maybe he can be like Danny Bonaduce and just knock someone's teeth out and get let off for it!

I hate geeks that do things like that, and they are everywhere. Freakin geeks are always doing something to piss people off.
