Jason Aldean Gets Hit by a Flying Beer

jason aldean

There are better ways to get Jason Aldean’s attention than the way one man did at Jason’s concert in Wichita, Kansas, on Thursday. The Wichita Eagle reports Jason was beaned in the head with a cup of beer thrown from the audience. The man, who was not named, was escorted out by Jason’s security. He told police his friend had just gotten engaged and he wanted Jason to acknowledge it from the stage.

Jason later told the crowd, “It took everything I had not to go kick that guy’s teeth in.” Tour managers have declined to press charges.
