According to the outlet:

The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office confirmed to Page Six on Thursday that it has dropped the case because Offset paid the victim to repair the damage to the phone.

It all comes after reports surfaced last moth that the “Migos” hitmaker was facing charges after he reportedly had knocked the phone belonging to Junior Gibbons to the ground, after the fan began filming the superstar while he shopped. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

Offset’s attorney, Drew Findling, later talked about the case with TMZ.

“On May 20, the warrant was set aside after extensive good faith conversations with members of the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Cephus tendered $160.92 to repair the phone screen — the full cost of the repair — and clearly indicating the warrant should never have been issued as a felony in the first place,” Findling shared.

“Immediately after paying, a Fulton County Judge signed an order setting the warrant aside,” he added.
