Cardi B is Facing a 14 Count Charge in Connection With NewYork Strip Club Brawl
Rapper Cardi B has reportedly been indicted on 14 charges, including two felonies, for a strip club brawl that happened in August 2018 in New York.
The 26-year-old mother of one had allegedly ordered an attack on two strip club bartenders that ended in physical injury for the plaintiffs.
According to TMZ, Cardi was indicted on Friday on two felony counts of attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury. She was also indicted on misdemeanour counts on reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy, and harassment.
The Grammy winner was originally only facing misdemeanour charges, but rejecting the plea deal caused additional charges to be made when the case was presented in front of a grand jury.
According to NBC New York, a surveillance video exists that shows Cardi B tossing an ice bucket at the sisters. The rapper and her entourage were also accused of throwing chairs and bottles. ABC News added that Cardi B’s arraignment will occur on Tuesday afternoon, which is also when the indictment will be unsealed.
