Akon’s Attorney Denies Criminal Conduct in Fan-Throwing Incident

Well maybe it wasn’t fake! (lol) Remember that video of Akon THROWING A KID into the crowd for hurling an object at him while he was on stage? Well, we said we thought it was fake, but maybe it wasn’t because now the police are supposedly getting involved! On Wednesday, Akon’s attorney released a statement proclaiming Black Night’s innocence:

“Given the information that we have reviewed to date, it does not appear to us that Akon was involved in any criminal conduct whatsoever,” read a statement from Akon’s attorney, Benjamin Brafman. “We are prepared to fully cooperate with any law enforcement agency that may be investigating this incident. We are confident that after a thorough investigation it will be apparent that no criminal prosecution of Akon is warranted.”

Fishkill police have the name of the fan who was hurled from the stage but have not yet released it. According to eyewitnesses and the fan video, the boy was pulled out of the crowd by a security guard after allegedly tossing an unidentified object at Akon. According to the Journal, the boy’s mother contacted authorities and gave them her son’s name. Police had been seeking the boy to see if he’d been injured in the incident and was interested in pressing charges. So far, no criminal charges have been filed against Akon and the Journal reported that the uninjured boy refused medical treatment on site and left right after the incident.

Hmm… oh, yeah credit goes to MTV News for this!
