Cardi B turned herself in to police in New York on Monday morning. The rapper will not be arrested, but will appear in court at a later date for her role in a strip club fight that occurred earlier this summer.
Cardi B showed up to Flushing, Queens’ 109th precinct just before 10 a.m. A New York Police Department public information officer confirmed the hip-hop star’s arrival to The Hollywood Reporter and said that her charges are “currently pending.”
According to TMZ, Cardi B will likely be charged with two misdemeanors for reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. She is due in court on Oct. 29.
The outlet reports that the impending charges stem from a strip club brawl that took place in August. Two bartenders, sisters Jade and Baddie Gi, previously claimed that the “Bodak Yellow” rapper ordered an attack on them at Queens’ Angels Strip Club. Both women were reportedly injured in the fight. However, they both refused medical treatment.
“Whether she’s a famous rapper or a common street hood, she’s got to be held accountable for her criminal actions,” Joseph Tacopino, an attorney for the sisters, said in a statement. “It’s as simple as that: She ordered the beating after threatening my clients and later participated in an assault against them.”
According to Tacopino, his comments were based on his clients’ accounts and those of witnesses, along with video footage from the club and Cardi B’s comments on social media. The Gi sisters claimed that Cardi B believed Jade slept with her husband, Migos rapper Offset, and ordered her staff to throw bottles at them in retaliation.
