A would-be assault case from the alleged autograph collector has been closed, according to comments given to TMZ from law enforcement sources Friday. Though there is footage alleging to show the man in question—Daniel Szalkiewicz—being beaten up by members of the security team, he has reportedly declined requests to be interviewed by the New York Police Department in connection with the incident.
In a since-deleted tweet posted last May, Cardi B seemingly addressed early reports of the incident, noting that she routinely has no issue giving out autographs to fans but this instance was contextually different.
"If you check my tag pics i take a lot of pics with fans," Cardi said at the time, per New York's Pix 11. "Some people are not fans & sometimes i don't want no pics and i simply don't want people too close cause of [pregnant woman emoji] i don't know what are people's intentions sooo i Be careful. Why can't people respect that? [sic]"
Coupled with Friday’s good news is word that there's still a pending civi lawsuit in connection with the incident. According to TMZ, Szalkiewicz sued Cardi B and Offset last May, alleging he sustained face and body injuries during the encounter near the Mark Hotel late on the evening of May 8.
Earlier this week, Cardi B was announced to be soon making her feature film debut alongside Jennifer Lopez in the upcoming Hustlers.
