McALESTER — A woman was arrested Saturday after allegedly jumping on stage at a music festival and attacking a legendary musician after he dedicated a song to Trayvon Martin, according to police and eyewitnesses.

The woman, who police identified as 43-year-old Dinalynn Andrews Potter of Barstow, Calif., apparently yelled, “It’s all your fault” before shoving 73-year-old Lester Chambers, his family said Sunday.

Chambers was performing at the Hayward Russell City Blues Festival downtown when around 5:15 p.m. he dedicated Curtis Mayfield’s hit “People Get Ready” to Martin, the 17-year-old shot and killed by George Zimmerman.

A Florida jury acquitted Zimmerman on all charges Saturday.
