LOS ANGELES, Feb 27, (Agencies): Nicolas Malvagna, who faced charges for hitting Bebe Rexha in the head with a thrown phone during her June 2023 concert in New York City, may see his charges dropped after a recent court hearing on February 9. The New Jersey resident accepted an offer to have his charges dismissed upon completing 40 days of community service, with the condition that he doesn’t violate a six-month order of protection.

Active in community service since the incident, Malvagna informed the court that the Manhattan District Attorney had proposed to “move for an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal.” Malvagna’s lawyer, Todd Spodek, stated that his client voluntarily agreed to complete private community service, leading to the dismissal and sealing of all criminal charges. Malvagna’s next court date is scheduled for June 20.

Following the incident at The Rooftop at Pier 17 in lower Manhattan, Malvagna faced multiple misdemeanor charges, including two counts of third-degree assault, second-degree aggravated harassment, third-degree attempted assault, and second-degree harassment. The criminal complaint revealed Malvagna’s admission to throwing the phone, stating, “I was trying to see if I could hit her with the phone at the end of the show because it would be funny.”

The thrown phone struck Rexha on the forehead during the concert, causing a split eyebrow and requiring stitches. Rexha, 34, was promptly escorted offstage and treated by a medical team at the venue, as documented in footage shared on X (formerly Twitter). Police confirmed her stable condition as she was taken to a nearby hospital. Rexha later reassured fans of her well-being through an Instagram post, sharing a selfie of her stitches and a healing black eye, along with the caption, “I’m good,” referencing both her health and her latest hit.
