Cardi B hit with new felony charges in strip club brawl
NEW YORK (AP) - The Grammy-winning rapper Cardi B has been indicted on new felony charges in connection with a fight last year at a New York City strip club.
The indictment filed in state court on Friday charges Cardi B with two counts of felony attempted assault and various lesser charges.
Prosecutors said she's to appear at an arraignment next week in Queens. There was no immediate response to a message seeking comment from her lawyer.
Police say Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, and her entourage were at the club when she argued with a bartender.
They say a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, causing minor injuries to the woman and another employee.
Cardi B rejected a plea deal earlier this year.
