Rapper Cardi B has been charged with reckless endangerment and assault following a brawl at a nightclub.
Reports say she has surrendered to the police amid investigation into the fight which took place at the Angels Strip Club in the city on August 29. She will appear in court on October 29 to face the charges.
While there are claims that two sisters working as bartenders were assaulted in the incident, Cardi’s lawyer, Jeff Kern, told reporters outside the police station in Queen’s that there was no evidence to support the claim.
“We are aware of no evidence that she caused anybody any harm from that night. We expect the matter to be resolved expeditiously,” he said
But Joe Tacopina, the lawyer representing the bartenders insisted that Cardi B ordered and committed violent assaults against his clients.
“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,” Tacopina told People.
Last month, Cardi was involved in a physical altercation with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj at a New York Fashion Week party, claiming Nicki made rude comments about her parenting skills. Nicki however denied the allegations.
