Mexican ranchera singer Jenny Rivera was arrested last week on charges of assault in North Carolina.

The news reports indicated that while she was performing onstage, someone threw a beer can onstage and struck her on the leg.

Rivera, 38, suffered injuries to her leg and was apparently very mad about the incident. As reported by the Mexican newspaper El Universal, Rivera asked the person who threw the can to come up on the stage. And when that person did so, Rivera apparently assaulted her,

That person later called police claiming she was assaulted. Rivera was later arrested on charges of assault. Rivera was released on $3,000 bond.

Rivera has a date to appear at the local court jurisdiction on July 25.

Jennii Rivera's latest CD is titled  "Mi Vida Loca," in reference, she said in an interview, to her having survived teen motherhood, two troubled marriages and taking care of her five children.

All this, while maintaining a busy touring and recording schedule as a red-hot norteno/banda singer.

Rivera is known, like fellow banda singer Paquita Del Barrio, as an outspoken male-bashing singer.

In a 2007 interview, Rivera said the title of the 11-track CD was appropriate because "It sang to my life. My life that has been very cravzy and different. I think I've lived happily. Difficultly, but happily."

The album features a blend of rancheras, corridos, cumbias, and polkas and lots of banda music's signature horn power.
