Cardi B suspect for ‘Battery’ after Mic toss incident in Vegas

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) has received a report from a concertgoer who was “struck by an item that was thrown from the stage,” the department stated in a statement to CNN on Monday.

Cardi B was playing there on Saturday, but the police did not include her in their statement, despite the address on the incident report being the same.

“According to the victim, she was attending an event on July 29, 2023, at a property located in the 3500 block of Las Vegas Boulevard. During a concert, she was struck by an item that was thrown from the stage,” authorities said.

According to authorities, no one has been detained or given a ticket.

Cardi B was singing at Drai’s Beach Club in Las Vegas over the weekend when an audience member hurled a drink toward the stage, as shown in video footage shared on social media, according to a previous story from CNN.

The rapper can be seen singing her 2018 song “Bodak Yellow” in the video while getting doused with liquid from the cup. Security guards raced to the platform and into the crowd, and Cardi B soon reacted by throwing her microphone into the throng.

Another footage from the event that was posted on social media shows Cardi B and her DJ pleading with the audience to “splash” her with water because it is so hot. It’s unclear whether this happened before or after the microphone incident.

In addition to requesting a copy of the police report from the LVMPD public records department, CNN has contacted the Clark County District Attorney’s office for comment.

The event that occurred on Saturday in Las Vegas is just the most recent in a string of instances where performers have been the target of things thrown at them while performing, with some of the performers receiving injuries as a result.

Performers have only recently intervened with audience members whose behavior they find objectionable.
