Cardi B Indicted For Felonies In Alleged Strip-Club Brawl
Cardi B was indicted in New York by a grand jury on multiple charges including two felonies in connection with a brawl at a New York strip club.
Cardi was arrested in October for allegedly ordering an attack on two strip club bartenders — Jade and Baddie G. The two women, who are also sisters, claim that they were injured during the brawl when Cardi’s entourage began throwing bottles and chairs. The incident, which went down in August, was reportedly triggered after Cardi accused singer Jade of sleeping with her husband, Offset. She has since been court ordered to stay away from the sisters.
Cardi was initially charged with assault and reckless endangerment, but, in April, Cardi rejected a plea deal that offered her reduced charges and no jail time. At a court appearance in late May, prosecutors said they would present their case to a grand jury. It is believed that Cardi ordered her group to attack the sisters.
The grand jury has indicted Cardi on 14 charges, including two counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury. Other charges include reckless endangerment, misdemeanor, conspiracy and harassment.
Cardi didn’t seem worried about the turn of events. She appeared at the ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards in Beverly Hills with Offset. She won an award for Songwriter of the Year.
The rapper, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, is set to be arraigned on June 25.
