Akon Caught 'Fan-throwing' Again

R+B singer AKON has been caught on camera pushing two female fans into the audience at a recent gig just days before hearing he could stand trial for a similar incident last year (07).
The Smack That hitmaker has been charged with one misdemeanour count of endangering the welfare of a minor and one count of second-degree harassment, after allegedly throwing a fan into the crowd during a concert in Fishkill, New York in June 2007.
The unnamed 15-year-old landed on another teenager, who later claimed she had been diagnosed with a concussion.
Akon - real name Aliaune Thiam - maintains he is innocent and appeared for a brief hearing at Fishkill Town Court on Wednesday (03Sep08) to ask a judge to grant his request for a jury trial.
However, videographers caught the singer on camera performing a similar stunt at a packed show in Guayana, South America on Saturday (30Aug08).
In the video, which can be seen on Perezhilton.com, the star is seen stage diving into the crowd. As he makes his way over excited revellers he returns to stage to find two young female fans dancing there.
The footage shows the star grabbing one of the girls and pushing her into the crowd on top of revellers underneath. The star then grabs the other fan and does the same with her.
Akon will be back in court over the original "fan-throwing" incident on 1 December (08), unless a deal is reached before then.
