Police Consider Charges Against Akon For Tossing Teen Off Stage

Police in Fishkill, New York may question Akon and file charges against R&B singer Akon, after footage surfaced of the singer tossing a fan into the crowd surfaced on the Internet.

The incident took place at Dutchess stadium in Fishkill, during the annual KFEST concert sponsored by radio station WSPK 104.7, after an unidentified fan tossed an object on the stage, narrowly missing the chart-topping Senegalese-American singer.

A young male who looks to be in his teens was called to the stage, after Akon queried the crowd to find out who threw the object.

As soon as the male steps on the stage, Akon quickly scooped him up and literally threw him into the crowd.

Footage of the incident didn't capture the teen getting up, but he refused medical treatment and was not hurt as a result of the incident.

Police in Fishkill are still searching for the teen, to determine if he would like to file charges against Akon.

"If and when they [police] determine that something has occurred, they will forward the case to us and we will review that," Dutchess County Senior District Attorney Edward McLoughlin told the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Akon was already embroiled in controversy, after footage of an April 12 concert in Trinidad surfaced, in which he simulated sex with a girl on teen.

It was later revealed that the girl was 14 and had illegally entered the club.

Still, the incident caused Verizon to drop Akon as a spokesman for the company.
