RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The teen accused of hitting a reggae legend with a glass bottle at Dominion Riverrock has been indicted on a malicious wounding charge.

That charge against 19-year-old William Lewis was certified by a grand jury.

Police say that Lewis threw a glass vodka bottle while the band Toots and the Maytals was performing at the festival. Frederick "Toots" Hibbert was injured and eventually canceled all future performances.

Lewis will go on trial in December.

Hibbert is also suing Lewis for $21 million in a civil suit.
