The Bronx rapper has been cleared of any offense in a criminal battery investigation linked to her throwing a mic at a fan.
Cardi B reportedly won't be charged in Las Vegas microphone throwing incident, police say
Cardi B’s battery investigation dropped, no charges for mic-throwing incident.
TMZ reports, on Thursday (Aug. 3) that the case has been dropped. The rapper’s attorneys told the outlet, “This afternoon we were notified by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept., that as a result of their investigation, there will be NO charges against Cardi. On behalf of Cardi, we appreciate the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Dept's diligent and prompt resolution of this matter.”
The media publication also reports, that the person who filed the police report was not the person Cardi aimed the mic at, but the second person who was hit after the mic ricocheted off the first person.
“This afternoon we were notified by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department that as a result of their investigation, there will be no charges against Cardi,” said her lawyers, Drew Findling, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld. “On behalf of Cardi, we appreciate the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's diligent and prompt resolution of this matter.”
Although she was listed as a battery suspect in the police filing, the case was never referred to the district attorney, and the authorities concluded Cardi’s actions did not constitute a criminal offense.
The microphone involved in the incident is now being auctioned off by the audio production company that owns it, and bids have already hit nearly $100,000. The money will reportedly go to charities including the Wounded Warrior Project and Friendship Circle Las Vegas, which assists teens and adults with special needs.
