TMZ reports witnesses said the woman was bleeding and crying. She managed to get up and walk off stage.

According to the Daily Mail, a representative for Afroman said he didn’t know if the fan was a man or woman and just reacted to someone being on the stage.

Police took him away handcuffed after the incident and he was later released after paying a $330 bond.
