Rapper Cardi B’s legal troubles may have gotten a bit bigger as the Bronx-based rapper was indicted by a grand jury stemming from an August 2018 altercation at Angels Strip Club in Flushing, New York.
A source with knowledge of the case confirmed the information in an interview with ABC News.
The specific charges are unknown and will remained sealed until the rapper is arraigned on Tuesday, the outlet reports. However, according to TMZ, Cardi faces 14 charges, including 2 counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury. Other charges include misdemeanor reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy and harassment.”
Cardi was arrested on October 1 after two female bartenders accused her of igniting a brawl where furniture, hookah pipes and bottles were thrown, resulting in multiple injuries. The bartenders, Jade and Baddie G, claim the fight began after the rapper accused Jade of sleeping with her husband, Migos rapper Offset. She was charged with misdemeanor reckless endangerment and misdemeanor assault after her October arrest.
The incident also was used in the lengthy back and forth exchange between Cardi and fellow New York rapper Nicki Minaj. The two have since agreed to stay positive after a fight broke out between both of their camps during New York Fashion Week in September.
In December, Cardi was almost arrested again after she failed to show for a scheduled hearing, but made it court in the nick of time during a rescheduled arraignment later in the same week.
In April the rapper rejected a deal to plead guilty to a Class A misdemeanor charge, Pix 11 reports.
Throughout her scheduled appearances Cardi has shown up to court in glamorous fashion, allowing reporters and paparazzi to get small peaks at her while she is whisked from her car to the courtroom.
According to TMZ, prosecutors decided to take the case to a grand jury after findings were discovered during the course of the investigation.
The rapper was out and about on Thursday night in Beverly Hills as the recipient of an ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Award for Songwriter of the Year.
