When Fans Attack


The R&B star chose an interesting form of retaliation against an unruly fan during a June 2007 concert in New York. The trouble began when an audience member hurled an object onstage, setting off the short tempered Senegalese star. Akon asked the crowd to point out the culprit. A member of his security team identified a 15-year-old boy and lifted him up onto the stage. Akon then proceeded to hoist the boy onto his shoulders and fling him into the crowd like a rag doll. He was later charged with endangering the welfare of a minor and second-degree harassment. —Jeff Royer
