23 Jun RAPPER CARDI B INDICTED ON MULTIPLE CHARGES
On Friday, rapper Cardi B was indicted by a grand jury on multiple charges in connection to the strip club brawl that made headlines last year.
Cardi B had allegedly attacked two sisters—Jade and Baddi Gi—who were bartending at a Queens nightclub, reportedly because she suspected one of them was having an affair with her husband, Offset. NBC News reports that Cardi was caught on camera throwing an ice bucket at them.
Cardi was originally arrested in October over this, but now, TMZ reports that a grand jury has indicted her on fourteen charges with regards to the alleged incident. The charges include two counts of felony assault with intent to cause serious physical injury.
Initially, Cardi B was only charged with two misdemeanors (assault and reckless endangerment), but she rejected a plea deal. Now, Cardi is set to be arraigned June 25.
The ladies have denied sleeping with Offset, and it’s still a little unclear just how this fight got started. Before that alleged August incident, Cardi B also had allegedly ordered five people to show up at the strip club to fight Jade. That fight allegedly involved “grabbing Jade’s hair, punching her, and hitting her with an ashtray.”
