Toots’ Suit Shoots For Loot From Hooch Boot

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 and Metropolitan Richmond Sports Backers Inc.

The suit also names security-provider Regional Marketing Concepts Inc. and another company that provided concessions for the concert.

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 (http://bit.ly/17he7Ty) that Venture Richmond objected on Monday to the allegation of negligence, saying the teen charged is solely responsible.
