CARDI B TURNS HERSELF IN TO POLICE
Cardi B turned herself in to New York Police on Monday morning.
An NYPD spokesperson told CNN, Cardi B was charged with two misdemeanors counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor count of assault.
The charges stem from an incident at the Angels Strip Club in New York on August 29.
Cardi B was “throwing chairs, bottles and hookahs in the club at 3 a.m.” Two bartenders were assaulted. Additional details about the incident were not made available.
Joe Tacopina, the attorney representing the two female bartenders, released a statement to CNN on Monday.
“Cardi B ordered and committed violent assaults against my clients, and is being called to justice for her crimes. Apparently, she thinks her celebrity status puts her above the law, since she has bragged to multiple people and on social media that she orchestrated these vicious attacks. But reality is setting in, as justice does not care whether her name is Cardi B or Carly B, and she will now answer for her crimes.”
A Queens District Attorney spokesperson told CNN a court date in the case is scheduled for October 29.
