Akon is pleading guilty to harassment after he launched a fan off stage at a concert last summer. Why do celebrities always get off so easy?
Akon will serve no jail time as long he performs 65 hours of community service and pays a $250 fine. The pop star was accused of picking up a teenage boy and throwing him off the stage during a June 2007 concert at a minor league baseball stadium near Poughkeepsie. Another concertgoer said she suffered a concussion when the teen landed on her. Damn, son.
Akon declined comment as he left court in Fishkill, N.Y.
Here’s the classic video to refresh your memory.
