Cardi B Avoids Charges for Mic Toss

Cardi B Avoids Charges for Mic Toss

Cardi B will not face charges after a July 2023 incident at a concert in Las Vegas. During her Drai’s Beach Club performance, the Bronx rapper retaliated against a concertgoer who threw a drink at her.

No Charges For Cardi

Cardi B threw a microphone at a concertgoer in Las Vegas after being hit with a drink. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) has closed the case due to insufficient evidence, according to a spokesperson.

The incident occurred when Cardi B asked fans to splash water on her, but throwing a cup was not part of the request. The police report revealed that the woman who filed the report did not throw the drink. 

Instead, the microphone bounced off the intended target and hit an innocent bystander. The “I Like It” rapper will not face any legal consequences for her actions despite the incident. 

The decision not to press charges was made after thoroughly reviewing the case and consultation with the Clark County District Attorney’s Office. The lack of evidence ultimately led to the case being closed.
