Rapper Cardi B turned herself in to the police on Monday in connection with the assault of two bartenders at a Flushing strip club.
The rapper, whose name is Belcalis Almánzar, was spotted leaving the 109th Precinct station this morning. TMZ first reported that the rapper would be charged with two misdemeanors — reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct — for allegedly ordering the attack of sisters Jade and Baddie Gi at Angels Strip Club, located at 32-17 College Point Blvd.
Almánzar was at the club on Aug. 29 to watch a performance by her husband’s rap group Migos. The rapper allegedly accused one of the sisters of sleeping with her husband, Offset.
TMZ said that the attack was spurred on after someone threw a drink at the rapper. Almánzar then ordered her entourage to attack the bartenders with bottles and chairs. They sustained injuries but reportedly refused medical attention.
Published reports indicated that Almánzar will not be arrested and will likely be ordered to appear in court on Monday, Oct. 29.
Angels Strip Club is the site of an unrelated argument that culminated in a deadly shooting at College Point Multiplex’s parking lot on Oct. 1. According to police, the suspect and victim were arguing at the strip club shortly before the shooting occurred.
