Kai Cenat Will Not Be Charged For NYC Riot Incident 

The New York prosecutor’s office has announced that a well-known Twitch streamer and YouTuber who was accused of instigating a riot last year after a giveaway in New York City descended into mayhem will not face charges. A spokesman for the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office stated on Tuesday that Kai Cenat and two other people have already paid more than $57,000. Cenat has also publicly apologized after the event in Union Square Park went horribly wrong on August 4.

The city did not approve or sanction the event. The popular video game streamer Cenat promised to give away PCs, gaming seats, keyboards, and consoles. His promises caused a huge influx of fans to flood the streets, and things got out of control. Aerial footage showed people standing on vehicles. Police said that pyrotechnics, bottles, and rocks had been hurled, and the NYPD. They also reported that three police officers had been hurt after being attacked by protesters and becoming caught in the crowd. The whole ordeal was a fiasco and a dangerous situation created by Cenat.
