50 Cent has been cleared of potential criminal charges related to an incident where he threw a microphone into the crowd during a concert in Los Angeles.
The incident, which occurred in August, resulted in a spectator, Power 106 radio host Bryhana Monegain, suffering multiple lacerations to her head and face. Monegain filed a police report, and the case was initially presented to the LA County DA as a felony. However, it was later passed to the LA City Attorney's Office.
The City Attorney's Office has decided not to file criminal charges against the 48-year-old rapper, provided he avoids any further incidents. The case will remain open for one year from the date of the incident and could be reevaluated for possible criminal charges if any new issues arise between 50 Cent and Bryhana.
The incident happened at LA's Crypto.com Arena, where 50 Cent was performing. A video showed him angrily throwing his microphone into the crowd, hitting Bryhana in the forehead.
The throw was reportedly due to technical issues with the microphone during the concert, which frustrated 50 Cent. His lawyer, Scott Leemon, stated that 50 Cent would never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone.
