Akon's pleaded not guilty to charges of endangering a minor...
Akon has appeared at a New York courtroom this week pleading not guilty to charges of endangering a minor made in June.
The artist allegedly hurled a 15-year-old fan from the stage he was performing on, only to hit another member of the audience.
Akon also faces other charges from the woman who was hit by the flying 15-year-old as she claims she suffered a concussion when the fan hit her.
The singer could face to one year and 15 days in prison but was released without bail Monday Dec 3 and was ordered to return to court on Jan 16.
Akon told the press this summer that the incident was staged and the whole affair was a tool to set up the next song he would perform. He told a website in August, "People know me for doing crazy things, but even this kind of thing, I'm going to cut out in the future as people are taking it in a negative way and taking it seriously.
A wise move Akon.
