London, Dec1 (ANI): Rapper Akon has been charged after he allegedly chucked a fan off stage during one of his concerts held in June.

It all started when the Smack That singer was performing in Fishkill and a missile thrown from the crowd hit him.

Then, the security pulled the alleged culprit from the crowd on the stage where the singer allegedly hoisted him onto his shoulders and threw him back into the audience, reports The Sun.

The culprit then landed on another teenager who later claimed she had been diagnosed with concussion.

The star will face an arraignment hearing on Dec 3.

Earlier also the Senegalese-born artist had sparked controversy with his live shows.

In May he was heavily criticised after dancing with an underage female fan he had plucked from the crowd. (ANI)
