Veteran reggae singer Toots Hibbert was forced to cut his performance short after been slapped with a vodka bottle.

On Saturday, the legendary Toots and the Maytals were performing at a concert in Richmond, Virginia when a patron pelted a vodka bottle on stage hitting Toots in the head.

A video of the incident shows 67 year old Toots being struck hard on the head, dropping his mike and staggering off the stage.

A 19-year-old man has been arrested and charged with aggravated assault and public intoxication, according to Richmond police.

An executive with Venture Richmond, the company that produces the three-day festival, said that the bottle used appears to have been stolen from the venue’s bar area.

Meanwhile, Toots has been treated and released from hospital.
