Police have dropped a felony charge of damage to property against Offset.
What We Know:
- Earlier this month, we reported that Offset was in hot water for allegedly slapping a phone out of a fan’s hand in a Target store. Video footage shows the fan attempting to record the rapper as he exited the store. The iPhone 8 fell on the ground and was damaged, according to a police report filed April 26.
- The case has been closed by the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office, according to police in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
- Prosecutors decided not to pursue the charges against Offset after him and the 18-year-old fan, Junior Gibbons, reached a mutual agreement on their own. Gibbons said his main reason for filing the report was to get Offset to pay for a replacement, and he didn’t want the rapper arrested, according to TMZ.
- Sandy Springs police Sgt. Sam Worsham told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that “all parties involved were able to come to an agreement.”
- Prosecutors in Clayton asked a judge to revoke the rapper’s bond following the Sandy Springs incident. The motion was canceled on Wednesday.
Offset still has pending criminal charges in Clayton County related to a July 2018 traffic stop.
