NEWS: Akon Charged With 'Endangering The Welfare Of A Minor'

Akon doesn't usually get any play on here, but this is too absurd to not post. Akon was charged with 'endangering the welfare of a minor and second-degree harassment' in fan tossing incident (see video below). It's the girl who functioned as the landing platform for the guy tossed off stage that is now suing. "Hip-hop star Akon has been charged by police after a fan said she suffered concussion when he allegedly threw a teenager off stage, hitting her. Audience members at the concert told Associated Press a spectator lobbed something at the singer and Akon asked the crowd to point out the culprit. A security guard picked out a 15-year-old and sent him up to the stage, where Akon is said to have picked him up onto his shoulders and threw him into the crowd." More here.

You know that Akon and R. Kelly are somewhere going back and forth secretly putting together a super group with a name like 'A Minor Problem'. Lead off single: a cover of Sam Cooke's 'She Was Only 16'.
