DaBaby’s Las Vegas Battery Case Reaches Its Conclusion
Las Vegas, NV – Unlike many of its visitors, DaBaby is leaving Sin City a winner. The charges against Baby — born Jonathan Kirk — have been dismissed in the assault case stemming from an incident with a Las Vegas limousine driver in November 2019.
According to TMZ, the misdemeanor assault charge was dismissed “without prejudice.” The case was resolved and won’t be revisited in the future as DaBaby obliged to every request made by the prosecution which included paying the driver $7,500 and staying out of trouble in 2021.
TMZ broke the original story in February when the limousine driver came forward claiming DaBaby attacked him during a ride in 2019. DaBaby’s camp called the lawsuit a “money grab” at the time as well. Baby was reportedly prepared to fight the case in a trial if it got to that point.
Attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld helped score the “Suge” rapper the legal victory in addition to celebrity lawyer Drew Findling.
DaBaby posted up with Findling in Las Vegas earlier in December and thanked him in an Instagram clip. Findling has also represented the late Young Dolph, Offset and helped negotiate NBA YoungBoy’s house arrest deal to get him to Utah.
DaBaby still has looming legal issues as he was sued in February by the owner of a Los Angeles rental home who alleges that he and one of his crew members assaulted him as he tried to break up an unauthorized music video on his property.
