LMFAO member Redfoo was injured after being hit with a glass bottle in the early hours of this morning.

The incident took place in a Sydney bar, and Billboard report that the man responsible for the glassing has been arrested by police and charged with malicious wounding.

Redfoo, real name Stefan Gordy, was at the Golden Sheaf Hotel in Double Bay when he was attacked. A 21-year-old man is reported to have thrown a glass at the musician and wounded him under his right eye.

"It was a crazy occurrence," Redfoo told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph newspaper. "We were sitting in the back area with my mates, surrounded by some thangs. We are dancing, having a good time, we're taking some pictures, taking the Snapchats… We were about to round up the party and take it home to the after party, as we normally do."

"All of a sudden out of nowhere a glass hits me in the head and I look over to see who might have thrown it and I see kind of a dodgy fella trying to flee the scene… I looked down at my hand and there was blood all over my hand. There's blood on the dancefloor and I’m bleeding. That just makes you a little more upset."

"So I go and I try to chase him out but they’re holding me back. I wanted to see what the guy looks like, I’ve got to see his face… He starts blowing me kisses and winking at me like, yeah sucker… It was unbelievable, like I had been hit in the head with an axe, unbelievable."

The man arrested after the attack has been granted conditional bail and is due to appear in court on September 24.
