The Atlanta rapper was celebrating three wins at pop’s biggest industry event when he allegedly got into a physical altercation with an event worker.

Los Angeles prosecutors announced Monday they will not file charges against Atlanta hip-hop artist Killer Mike in an alleged altercation at the Grammy Awards in February.

The City Attorney’s Office stated that Michael Render, known as Killer Mike, had “successfully completed the Office’s Hearing process, including a community service requirement that was imposed.”

Killer Mike’s legal counsel, Michael A. Goldstein, said, “criminal charges were not warranted,” adding, “Mike has been cleared.”

Killer Mike, 49, blamed the Feb. 4 incident at Arena on an “over-zealous security guard” and confusion about which door he and his team should use.

Law enforcement sources alleged the rapper pushed and elbowed the unidentified event worker as she tried to direct him to a security checkpoint. The woman, who was checked by medical personnel, made a citizen’s arrest, leading officers to book Killer Mike on suspicion of battery.

The hip-hop artist, part of Run the Jewels and a key figure in Atlanta’s pop culture renaissance, won awards for best rap performance, best rap song, and best rap album for last year’s “Michael,” his sixth album.

On Sunday, he accepted another honor for “Michael,” winning the album of the year trophy at the BET Awards.
