Rapper, singer and TV personality Cardi B was arrested and charged today in connection with a strip club fight in August, according to media reports.
After performing at a major concert Saturday night in New York’s Central Park, she appeared today at a police station in Queens, USA Today reports. She was reportedly arrested and charged with misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault.
“Officer Andrew Lava, a spokesman for the New York Police Department, confirmed that the platinum-selling rapper, accompanied by her attorney, surrendered at the 109th Precinct, was arrested and released with a ‘desk appearance ticket’ to return to face the charges at a later, unspecified court date,” USA Today reports. “Because the charges are misdemeanors, she was eligible to be released on a desk appearance ticket, Lava said.”
Her attorney, Jeff Kern, commented that he’s “aware of no evidence” that Cardi B “caused anybody any harm.”
USA Today adds: “The charges involve a fight-turned-assault at the Angels Strip Club, not far from the precinct, on Aug. 29, in which Cardi B and some in her entourage are alleged to have thrown furniture recklessly, causing injuries to employees’ feet and legs.
“No one else has yet been arrested or charged in connection with the melee, Lava said.”
