TMZ: Cardi B to turn herself into police after allegedly ordering attack on bartenders

Just over the weekend, Cardi gave her biggest solo performance since giving birth in July to a daughter she shares with her husband, the rapper Offset.

Police say that Cardi threw a chair at two bartenders while at Angels NYC, a strip club at 32-17 College Point Blvd., at around 3:00 a.m. on August 29.

This whole thing is related to the previous reports that she was the mastermind of a club attack on two bartenders.

The Bodak Yellow rapper was arrested and charged with assault and reckless endangerment, the New York Police Department confirmed to Us Weekly.

Cardi B has become one of the biggest new stars in U.S. music since the runaway success a year ago of her song "Bodak Yellow", which touches on her former life making ends meet as a stripper.

She turned herself in at a Flushing precinct in Queens before 10 a.m. She was fingerprinted and ordered to take a mugshot, TMZ reports. She was not arrested and has reportedly been ordered to appear in court at a later time, but details of her future court appearance have not yet been released to the public. Her lawyer Jeff Kern, however, did have some words to share outside the police precinct in Queens. Her face was covered by umbrellas as she exited a vehicle and walked inside.

He added: "But reality is setting in, as justice does not care whether her name is Cardi B or Carly B, and she will now answer for her crimes".

According to TMZ, one of the bartenders, Jade, "claims Cardi repeatedly threatened her with violence on Instagram, and in June, Jade and her sister Baddie Gi, claim they were face-to-face with Cardi at an Atlanta hotel". Both sisters were hurt but refused medical attention.

However, Cardi's camp say the incident was not premeditated but popped off after someone threw a drink into the crowd.
