Rapper 50 Cent, known for his explosive stage presence, found himself in hot water after a mic-toss incident during his L.A. show in August. The incident left a spectator, Bryhana Monegain, with multiple lacerations to her head and face.
Power 106 radio host Bryhana Monegain filed a police report following the August 30 incident, which was initially presented as a felony case to the L.A. County District Attorney’s office. However, the D.A.’s Office subsequently referred the case to the L.A. City Attorney’s office.
The latest update on the case comes from the L.A. City Attorney’s office, which confirmed to TMZ that no criminal charges have been filed against the 48-year-old rapper. They indicated that as long as 50 Cent avoids any further incidents, he will remain in the clear regarding this matter.
The case will remain open for one year from the date of the incident, and it could be re-evaluated for possible criminal charges if there are any future incidents involving 50 Cent and Bryhana Monegain.
The mic-toss incident occurred during 50 Cent’s performance at L.A.’s Crypto.com Arena. Video footage showed him angrily hurling his microphone into the crowd, inadvertently striking Bryhana Monegain in the forehead, resulting in her needing medical attention.
According to his lawyer Scott Leemon, 50 Cent would “never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone.” The incident occurred amid technical issues during the concert, leading to 50 Cent’s frustration.
For now, 50 Cent can breathe a sigh of relief as he avoids criminal charges, provided there are no further altercations between him and Bryhana Monegain.
