Grammy winning reggae musician Frederick "Toots" Hibbert is suing several organizations after he was injured during a May concert in Richmond.

Hibbert has filed the $20 million lawsuit in Richmond Circuit Court against Venture Richmond, Metropolitan Richmond Sports Backers Inc, Regional Marketing Concepts Inc. and another company that provided concessions for the concert.

The leader of Toots & 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 stops on his tour and returned to Jamaica.

Media outlets report that Venture Richmond has objected to the allegation of negligence, saying the teen charged in the incident is solely responsible.
