Battery charges dropped for Playboi Carti beating up girlfriend in LAX airport.

Charges against Playboi Carti back in July, will not be filed, TMZ reports. Last month, the "Magnolia" rapper was arrested after he allegedly grabbed his girlfriend by her backpack and forced her out of the airport terminal. The 20-year old was charged with domestic battery as a result of the incident.

Rather than filing charges, the L.A City Attorney will hold an informal hearing with Carti and his girlfriend to talk about steps to avoid arguments like theirs in the future. As a result of the hearing, Carti could receive a stern warning and be ordered to a counseling program. However, prosecutors could still file charges against the rapper should he get arrested again within a year.
