Hit American rapper Cardi B surrendered to police in NY on Monday to answer charges of assault stemming from a brawl in a strip-club during the summer, police said.
The new mother was escorted by security as she made her way to the 109th precinct in Queens before 10 a.m on Monday, October 1. Cardi B will be charged with two misdemeanors, disorderly conduct, and reckless endangerment. According to police, the 25-year-old rapper got into a fight at Angels Gentlemen's Club, and allegedly threw a chair at an unintended target.
A spokesperson for the NYPD told CNN that in addition to the misdemeanor count of assault, the burgeoning rap star has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of reckless endangerment for her alleged involvement in a brawl at Angels Strip Club on August 29.
The two women, who TMZ identified as Jade and Baddie Gi, required medical care following the attack.
"We're aware of no evidence that she caused anybody any harm at the club that night", Kern told reporters on Monday. "But it doesn't matter if her name is Cardi B or Carl B. if she commits violent assaults she will be brought to justice".
"Bodak Yellow" rapper Cardi B has turned herself over to the police.
Police officials had been called to the gentlemen's club about 3am August 29 after the rapper and nine others were suspected of "a reckless endangerment act" that involved throwing bottles, the NYPD said.
She was later released with a "desk appearance ticket" to return to face the charges at a later, as-yet-unspecified court date.
Prior to turning herself into authorities, Cardi performed at the 2018 Global Citizen Concert in New York City's Central Park on Saturday, her first performance since giving birth to daughter Kulture in July.
