Cardi B Pleads Not Guilty on Counts Resulting From the Strip Club Brawl
Rapper, Cardi B plead not guilty to two counts of felony, as well as a handful of lesser counts, resulting from her alleged involvement in two strip club altercations last August.
“Not guilty, sir, honor,” she said. The Bodak yellow star, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, sees the legal drama shift into far more serious territory.
On Friday, a grand jury indicted her on felony, attempted assault and lower-level counts including harassment, conspiracy, and reckless endangerment. Before the indictment, she had been facing misdemeanour assault and reckless-endangerment charges.
Cardi B who previously said no to a plea deal that could have kept her out of jail was initially accused of throwing a glass bottle and alcohol during an alleged altercation at Angels NYC Strip Club in the early hours of August 29.
According to prior court documents, sisters Sarah and Rachel Wattley were working as bartenders at the club that evening. The initial allegation was that a brawl had broken out after someone in Cardi B’s party threw a drink at them.
