Afroman Will Not Serve Jail Time For Assaulting Female During Concert

Afroman has avoided serving jail time for punching a female concertgoer in the face back in February. Instead, the “Because I Got High” rapper was ordered to pay a $330 fine and attend anger management and impulsive behavior counseling, USA Today reports.

He was reportedly sentenced on a plea of simple assault.
