A man from Courtland, Ont., has been sentenced to a year in jail for causing punching a man in the face during a Kid Rock concert in Batavia, in the western part of upstate New York, last year.
Local media report that 35-year-old Craig Lawson was sentenced Monday to a year in Genesee County Jail.
Lawson pleaded guilty to assault in June for punching Jason McNeil of Tuscaloosa, Ala., in the face during a concert in July 2013 at Darien Lake Theme Park.
Lawson admitted he punched McNeil after he mistook him for another man who groped his wife after the concert.
McNeil suffered a traumatic brain injury and was in a coma for a time. Prosecutors say he requires constant supervision.
Kid Rock donated $5,000 to defray McNeil's medical bills.
