Cardi B will not be charged in mic-throwing incident
Cardi B will not be facing any charges for throwing a microphone at a fan, according to her lawyers. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department concluded their investigation and determined that no charges will be filed against Cardi. Her legal team, consisting of Drew Findling, David Chesnoff, and Richard Schonfeld, expressed their appreciation for the prompt resolution of the matter. Cardi B herself took to Twitter to celebrate the news and shared a picture of two Jewish men, seemingly referring to her lawyers.
Fans of Cardi pointed out lyrics from her song “Bickenhead,” where she mentioned having a Jewish lawyer who would handle any legal charges. This investigation comes after Cardi was drenched with a drink during her performance in Las Vegas. In response, she threw her microphone at the concertgoer, as seen in a viral TikTok video. Security intervened, escorted the woman out, and Cardi encouraged the audience to splash water on her before the incident occurred.
Following the incident, Cardi was initially listed as a suspect for battery. However, it was later revealed that the woman who was struck with the microphone was not the one who threw the drink. The actual culprit was standing next to her. The microphone involved in the incident is now being auctioned on eBay for charity by Scott Fisher, who provided audio support for the show. The current high bid for the microphone is over $99,000.

The probe comes nearly a week after Cardi, 30, was doused with a drink during her performance at Drai’s Beachclub in Las Vegas.
After a moment of shock, the Grammy winner subsequently flung her microphone at the concertgoer, according to a viral video shared on TikTok Sunday.

The woman who was struck with the mic reported the incident to the Las Vegas Metro PD and, per TMZ, she was not the one who threw the drink. Instead, she was hit by mistake because the actual culprit was standing next to her.
The microphone that was involved in the incident is now being auctioned for charity on eBay by Scott Fisher — whose company provided audio support for the show.
“If you want a piece of hip hop infamy and what has now become national and world news then please bid whatever you are willing to spend….thanks,” Fisher wrote on the listing.
As of Thursday afternoon, the mic had a high bid of more than $99,000.
