Member Of Toots And The Maytals Injured During Concert

RICHMOND, Va. (May 19, 2013)--The leader of the reggae band Toots and the Maytals was injured during a performance in Richmond, Va., when a 19-year-old man threw a bottle that hit the singer.

The teenager was charged with aggravated assault, police said Sunday.

Authorities have not identified him.

The singer, Frederick "Toots" Hibbert, was treated at a hospital for a cut to his head and released.

Hibbert was hit by a glass bottle thrown from the crowd Saturday night as the band was performing at the Dominion Riverrock outdoor sports and music festival.

The band stopped playing after he was hit.

Festival organizers say Hibbert was in good spirits despite the incident and regretted that the concert had to be stopped early.
