Cardi B Enters ‘Not Guilty’ Plea Over Strip Club Fight Charges

Cardi B Enters ‘Not Guilty’ Plea Over Strip Club Fight Charges

Taking place at the New York Supreme Court, she entered a plea regarding a 12-count indictment, including charges of assault, harassment, conspiracy and second-degree reckless endangerment. NBC New York reported Cardi was caught on camera tossing an ice bucket at the women.

"I know Cardi on a personal level, I know Cardi as a wife, as a mother, as a daughter, as a sister", attorney Drew Finley said.

After Cardi's court appearance she filmed herself and her daughter, Kulture, relaxing on a private jet and continued to promote the music video for her new single, Press, which is out today.

According to ABC 7 NY and TMZ, Cardi declined the judge's offer to read her charges aloud in court.

Her chart-topping hits include "I Like It" and the Maroon 5 collaboration 'Girls Like You'.

Last week, prosecutors in Queens told Fox News the case would remain sealed until Cardi B's arraignment on Tuesday - at which point the specific details surrounding the charges would be made available.

After Cardi B rejected the plea deal, prosecutors presented the case to a grand jury.

The rapper surrendered to New York City police last October after a complaint claimed she was involved in a fight at the Angels NYC strip club in Queens. This kind of violence won't be tolerated in our community.

According to law enforcement officials, Cardi B plotted to attack bartender sisters Rachel Wattley and Sarah Wattley, who are well known in the nightclub scene as Jade and Baddie Gi.

Police have said a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, causing minor injuries to the woman and another employee.

Her latest single, "Press", is now at 60 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Cardi's lawyers have said they're not aware of any evidence showing Cardi caused anyone harm.

In an indictment made public Tuesday, Queens prosecutors claimed that Cardi B and Jackson-Morel used social media to coordinate an August 15 attack on a 21-year-old bartender and discussed money payments to people who carried it out.

Bush is accused of filming an attack by a woman who hasn't been arrested or charged, on 15 August, as well as using his body to make sure nobody could intervene.

A source told the publication that the 26-year-old rapper didn't look upset in the courtroom and she even "had a grin on her face like she always does".
