The leader of Toots and the Maytals was struck in the head with a tossed vodka bottle while he performed on Brown's Island in the James River. After suffering a deep head cut, Hibbert canceled the remaining dates on his tour and returned to Jamaica.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that Venture Richmond objected on Monday to the allegation of negligence, saying the teen charged is solely responsible.
