The Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B has been prosecuted on brand-new felony charges in connection with a battle in 2015 at a New York City strip club. The indictment submitted in state court on Friday charges Cardi B with two counts of felony attempted attack and numerous lesser charges. She had previously been charged with misdemeanor careless endangerment and attack counts, CBS New York reported.
Police state Cardi B, whose genuine name is Belcalis Almanzar, and her entourage were at the club Aug. 29 when she argued with a bartender. They state a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, causing small injuries to the woman and another employee.
Cardi B declined a plea deal previously this year from the Queens District Attorney’s Workplace. Her lawyer has actually declared she didn’t hurt any person throughout the occurrence, reports CBS New York.
Prosecutors stated she’s to appear at an arraignment next week in Queens. There was no instant reaction to a message seeking remark from her lawyer Friday.
