Cardi B Pleads Not Guilty on Criminal Charges Connected to 2018 Incident
Cardi B pleaded not guilty on criminal charges of reckless endangerment and assault connected to a 2018 strip club brawl CBS2 reports.
The Bronx native pleaded not guilty at her arraignment back in 2019, after being indicted on 12 counts including two counts of felony for attempted assault and a charge for reckless endangerment, the report noted.
Cardi B is accused of throwing a bottle at two bartenders, the Wattley sisters, and ordering friends Tawana Jackson-Morel and Jeffrey Bush to attack them per Yahoo!
Per the outlet, court documents state that the rapper “planned with her friends over social media where the trio coordinated a date, time, and location to assault the bartending sisters.”
During the altercation, two of her friends allegedly “threw glasses bottles, and drinks during the scuffle.” One sister claimed that her head was slammed into the bar during the incident. Sources claim that the reason for the incident was because Cardi claimed that one of the sisters slept with her husband Offset at the time, per Yahoo.
The rapper will be heading back to Queens Criminal Court on Oct. 25 to be scheduled for a hearing. If convicted, both Cardi and her friends face up to four years in prison.
