Cardi B Pleads Not Guilty to Felony Charges Over Strip Club Melee

By Daniel Goldblatt

Cardi B arrived to court in Queens on Tuesday afternoon to face charges related to a brawl in a strip club last year.

Fans went wild as Cardi (real name: Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar) walked into the courthouse for her arraignment. She entered a plea of not guilty to the charges, which include two counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury.

The rapper faces up to four years in prison if she is convicted on each attempted assault charge.

According to ABC7 in New York City, when Cardi B entered her plea, she told the judge, "Not guilty sir, honor."

Cardi was in court in April where she rejected a plea deal in the case that would have called for Cardi to plead guilty to misdemeanor assault in the third degree. Cardi would not have done jail time and she would have been given certain conditions that if met, would have dismissed the case.

The rapper was originally facing charges of assault and reckless endangerment following an incident where she was allegedly involved in a fight in a strip club.

Back in August 2018, two sisters claim they were attacked while working at the Angels strip club in New York City. The girls allege the fight was over an alleged sexual encounter with Offset.

They claim someone from Cardi B’s entourage assaulted them by throwing bottles and chairs, and so they filed a lawsuit against the “Taki Taki” star for damages.

Cardi was booked at a Queens police station back in October 2018.
