According to Chart Attack, Been had polished off a container of water before throwing the empty bottle over his shoulder. Missing the garbage receptacle, the bottle hit the 46-year old fan -- who underwent a retinal transplant in the same eye when he was a boy -- damaging his retina and iris.
Been, who was touring in support of BRMC's latest album 'Beat the Devil's Tattoo,' was also given a three-month suspended sentence for the mishap. As opposed to some less than penitent rockers, he had already offered to cover all costs required to help his victim heal.
