Robert Tried in Munich Court
On May 5, 2010, while performing at 'Backstage' in Munich, Germany, Robert had his back turned when he tossed a small plastic bottle of water into the crowd, which allegedly accidentally hit a man in the eye resulting in serious damage to his eye sight. Robert was taken to prison in Munich that evening and released on bail the following day.
Robert appeared in court in Munich, where both sides testified. Due to the severe damage of the man's sight in his right eye, the judge ruled that Robert personally be required to pay 18,500 euros to the victim for pain and suffering, along with a 3 month suspended sentence. Robert stated that he feels terrible that his action could have caused this injury and wishes a speedy recovery to the injured party.
