Machine Gun Kelly is skating on criminal battery charges for allegedly beating up a parking lot attendant while filming a movie in Los Angeles.
According to multiple reports, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office has decided to reject the criminal case, declining to file charges against the singer after seeing the evidence. In this case, prosecutors believed they would not be able to secure a conviction in the case, and didn’t have enough evidence.
As we reported, MGK is accused of pushing a parking lot attendant in the chest near the location of a movie shoot with his friend and Bella Thorne’s ex-boyfriend, Mod Sun. The duo was shooting ‘Good Mourning with a U,” when allegedly the attendant starts arguing with a crew member. During the argument, Machine Gun Kelly allegedly yelled at the guy to get off the set.
Machine Gun Kelly Denies Pushing Parking Lot Attendant
According to MGK, he never made physical contact with the worker and says the pushing allegation is totally false. It should be noted, the worker waited almost a week before reporting the alleged battery to the police department. Plus, he didn’t suffer any injuries, and there were no witnesses. In other words, this would be very hard to prove in court, hence the declining to file charges.
In many cases, when a battery occurs and there are no witnesses — including no officers present — the case will get rejected by prosecutors.
Machine Gun Kelly isn’t out of the woods yet for this situation, the alleged victim filed a civil lawsuit against the rocker, claiming he was traumatized by the incident and is a “sensitive, soft-spoken” person. Also, the gentleman claims the rapper committed elder abuse by pushing him.
Machine Gun Kelly Sued Over Parking Lot Incident
In the lawsuit, the man says the rapper became very aggressive towards him and pushed him after he questioned the group about having a permit to shoot in the area. On the day in question, he says he showed up to work and was in charge of opening the gate to let bank branch employees into the parking lot. He alleges he parked his car where MGK’s crew was filming, and they asked him to move it because it was in the shot.
Of course, the attendant asked the rocker if he had a permit, and followed up with the bank — which said he did not.
At this point, the man informed the musicians that they were not allowed to be there, and asked them to leave. That’s when he claims the group approached him and became very aggressive. In the end, the attendant says it was so bad, he continues to suffer from the incident. “He literally appeared as if he was going to cry throughout the day,” the suit claims.
Parking Lot Attendant Claims Machine Gun Kelly Is Guilty Of ‘Elder Abuse?!’
The parking lot attendant is suing for assault, battery, negligence, and elder abuse. Interestingly, the alleged victim is only 49 years old, so the last allegation is a little weird.
Again, MGK denies making any contact with the person, but the case is ongoing.
