Rapper 50 Cent has been cleared of criminal charges related to the infamous mic-throwing incident that occurred during an August concert earlier this year. The court has officially announced that there will be no criminal charges filed against the artist.
However, it’s important to note that legal authorities will maintain an open filing until August 30, 2024, exactly one year after the incident, leaving a window for potential reevaluation if any further incidents transpire.
In case the mic-throwing incident has slipped from your memory, 50 Cent found himself frustrated with technical difficulties during a live performance in Los Angeles. This frustration culminated in him forcefully tossing the microphone into the crowd, inadvertently striking Power 106 radio host Bryhana Monegain.
The impact left Monegain with lacerations on her face and head, necessitating medical attention. Subsequently, she filed a police report, which escalated to a felony charge in L.A. County’s District Attorney’s office and eventually reached the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office.
The latest update from the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office, as reported by TMZ, states that 50 Cent will not face criminal charges for the incident. However, there’s a crucial condition attached – the New York rapper must maintain a clean record, specifically avoiding any trouble with Bryhana Monegain, for the next ten months or so. This period of observation extends until August 30, 2024, marking the one-year anniversary of the mic-throwing incident.
