A 55-year-old man has died after being shoved at a Hank Williams Jr. concert on Sunday (Aug. 17).

While previous reports have blamed a 15-year-old for the incident, the man’s son is now speaking out in defense of the young man who was accused.

According to 29-year-old Cory Kobe, he and his father Robert Kobe attended Williams’ show at DTE Energy Music Theatre in Michigan on Sunday, and  said his father’s death was an accident.

“I want to make sure that this young man gets fair treatment,” Kobe told the Detroit Free Press of the teen, who was taken into custody after he shoved his father.

Cory explained that the Kobe family actually knew the teen.
