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

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

Cardi was caught on camera throwing a microphone into the crowd after a fan threw a drink at her during her performance at Drai’s nightclub on Saturday, July 29.

Cardi asked the crowd to splash water on her to cool her down in the burning Vegas heat, but when someone threw a cup with an unknown liquid and ice, she hurled the mic at the person. It ricocheted and hit another person.

Security then intervened while the rap star yelled from the stage. After getting her microphone back, she told the audience, “I said splash my p***y not my face b***h.”

A woman, who claimed that she got hit by the mic but did not throw the drink, later reported Cardi for battery.

The 26-year-old woman said she stood next to the person who threw the drink and got hit by the microphone on the right shoulder. She claimed she’s “experiencing pain because of the incident and is going to go get medical attention after she returns home.”

Meanwhile, the microphone, which belongs to an audio production company called The Wave in Sin City, has been put up for auction at eBay with the proceeds going to charity.

The Shure Axient digital mic, which originally cost $1,000, has received a staggering bid of $99,900. The owner of The Wave in Sin City, Scott Fisher, said that the proceeds will be split with two charities, the Wounded Warrior Project and a local Vegas charity called Friendship Circle Las Vegas, which benefits teens and young adults with special needs.
