Cardi B: Police in the United States have dropped a battery inquiry stemming from a thrown microphone.

The Las Vegas Police Department has closed its criminal battery investigation into an incident in which rapper Cardi B threw a microphone at someone in the audience.

The incident happened last weekend after an audience member seemed to pour water at the musician.

A video of the WAP star taking matters into her own hands at Drai’s Beachclub went viral at the time.

However, due to “insufficient evidence,” she will now face no charges, according to police.

“After a thorough review of this case and consultation from the Clark County District Attorney’s Office, this case has been closed as having insufficient evidence,” the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department stated in a statement shared with the PA news agency.

“No charges will be filed in relation to this case.”

Lawyers for the Grammy winner responded by applauding police for their “diligent and prompt resolution of this matter,” according to several reports.

What happened?

Security personnel are seen surrounding the perpetrator at the front of the crowd while collecting the rapper’s microphone in the film, which was captured from several perspectives by several spectators.

Earlier in the act, Cardi B asked a different member of the audience to spray her from behind as she turned her back to the audience.

Later in the presentation, the 30-year-old explained that the earlier spray was done on her back and at her request, however she objected to another member of the audience unexpectedly dumping water in her face.

Police in Las Vegas later stated that a showgoer had come forward to “report a battery,” but they have already concluded that no crime was committed.

The microphone in question is now purportedly being auctioned off on eBay by the owner of an audio company, with bids reaching more than $99,000 so far.

Why are spectators hurling objects at performers on stage?
Cardi B is most known for songs like “I Like It,” “Up,” “Bodak Yellow,” and “WAP,” a sexually charged bass-heavy rap duet with Megan Thee Stallion.

She is the second musician in recent months to have items hurled at them while onstage, following similar occurrences with Harry Styles, Pink, and Bebe Rexha.

After being hit by a phone while performing, Rexha was transported to the hospital. The accused said he thought the incident would be “funny.”

Styles was hit in the eye with a sweet at a concert in November, and Pink was horrified recently when a bag of human ashes was thrown on stage.
