After hitting a fan for throwing a beer can at her during one of her concerts, and spending some time in jail for it, Jenni Rivera said she was responsible for her actions, but wouldn't apologize to the male fan that she hit.

“The only thing I can say is that I'm not very happy about it, but I do take responsibility for what I've done,” said the 39-year-old singer to a Los Angeles radio station.

Lupillo Rivera's sister hit her fan Óscar Alexánder Paz with a microphone on his brow during the middle of a concert in Raleigh, North Carolina, after someone had hit her with a beer can. When the singer asked who had done it, Paz raised his hand, and he was invited to come up to the stage, where he received a whooping from Rivera.

The singer, who was left the concert in a police car, had to pay bail to be released, and will have to go to court next month to face assault charges. Paz stated that he never threw anything at Rivera, but raised his hand only because he thought he might be able to dance with her on stage, but never thought he would get a beating.
