Popular American rapper, Cardi B has been arrested by the New York Police Department in connection with an alleged assault at a strip club.
The rapper was arrested on Monday Oct.1 and charged with two misdemeanors, assault, and reckless endangerment, after turning herself into New York police department. Her mugshot was taken and she was fingerprinted.
Cardi B will appear in court on October 29 for a “Best appearance ticket,” which means she has to appear to pay a fine. There will be no trial or sentencing as her punishment (the fine) has already been determined by both the DA and her lawyers and her punishment does not include any jail time.
Cardi B’s arrest is part of an investigation into an assault complaint that stemmed from an incident that occurred on August 29th at around 3 a.m. According to police, the 25-year-old rapper got into a fight at Angels Gentlemen’s Club and allegedly threw a chair at an unattended target.
Going by reports, It is possible that the victim of the assault could sue Cardi, and in that case, she would have to appear in court as part of a civil suit. Cardi was shielded by umbrellas and surrounded by bodyguards as she turned herself in on Monday, wearing a sheer white blouse, a tan skirt and white heels.
