Cardi B Indicted on 14 Charges in Strip Club Brawl Case: Report
The saga of Cardi B's court case for a strip club brawl continues.
According to a report ABC News published on Friday (June 21), a grand jury in Queens, New York, has indicted the rap star in the strip club brawl case. The outlet says the indictment for the case won't be unsealed until Tuesday afternoon.
TMZ reports that Cardi, whom a jury originally charged with a misdemeanor count of assault and two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment last October, has been indicted on 14 charges, including two counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury, criminal solicitation, conspiracy and harassment and more.
The charges stem from Cardi's alleged involvement in a brawl at Angels Strip Club on Aug. 29, 2018. Cardi, who performed at the 2019 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival last weekend, is accused of throwing bottles and chairs at two bartenders, Rachel Wattley (Baddie GI) and Sarah Wattley (Jade), after rumors spread that Sarah had been sexually involved with the rapper’s husband, Offset. Both women claim Cardi threw at least one champagne bottle at them in the melee.
During a Dec. 7 hearing, a judge served Cardi with orders of protection, which would ban her from coming in contact with the accusers. In April, the Grammy-winning rapper rejected a plea deal from the Queens District Attorney's Office.
Cardi is reportedly set to return to court on Tuesday. XXL has reached out to Cardi's team for comment.
