Rapper convicted after throwing fan off stage


Akon has pleaded guilty to harassment after he threw a 15-year-old boy off stage in New York.

Fan Abby Rosa claims she was injured during the incident and was later diagnosed with concussion.

Audience members told the Associated Press that someone threw an object at the rapper.

He apparently asked people to point to the culprit and a security guard sent the boy to the stage.

Akon, real name Aliaune Thiam, is then said to have lifted the teen onto his shoulders before throwing him into the crowd.

He was fined £165 and ordered to do 65 hours community service following the incident at the Dutchess Stadium in Fishkill in June 2007.

Akon, 35, refused to comment as he left court yesterday.
