Offset just got a huge weight lifted off his shoulders … he won’t face charges for allegedly smashing a fan’s phone while shopping in a Target store — but the fan’s pretty happy too.
According to police in Sandy Springs, Georgia, the case has been closed by the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … prosecutors decided not to pursue charges against Offset after the rapper and the fan, Junior Gibbons, hammered out a mutual agreement on their own. Gibbons previously told us he simply wanted Offset to pay for a new phone.
TMZ broke the story … a felony arrest warrant was issued for Offset after Gibbons filed a police report over the incident inside the store. Video shot by Gibbons, on his phone, shows Offset smacking the device out of his hand — and Gibbons claimed the screen shattered when the phone crashed to the ground.
As we reported … Gibbons said his main reason for filing the police report was to get Offset to pony up for a replacement phone, and he didn’t want Offset arrested.
Soooo … classic win-win.
