Cardi B Sentenced To Community Service After Strip Club Brawl

In order to avoid a criminal trial, on Thursday (9.14) Cardi B accepted a no-jail plea deal from New York prosecutors and pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges linked to four-year old bottle-tossing fight inside a Queens, New York strip club.

According to a prosecution source, the multi-Grammy-winning musician (born Belcalis Almánzar) pleaded guilty to third-degree assault and second-degree reckless endangerment and was sentenced to 15 days of community service. Cardi also agreed to abide by orders of protection filed by the two victims in the case – bartending sisters known as Jade and Baddie Gi.

In a statement sent to Rolling Stone, the famous rapper said “Part of growing up and maturing is being accountable for your actions. As a mother, it’s a practice that I am trying to instill in my children, but the example starts with me. I’ve made some bad decisions in my past that I am not afraid to face and own up to. These moments don’t define me and they are not reflective of who I am now.” “I’m looking forward to moving past this situation with my family and friends and getting back to the things I love the most – the music and my fans.”

Following the August 2018 the incident at Angels Strip Club, the 29-year-old artist had been facing a slew of other charges and was arrested two months later, in October, for her alleged role in a wild fight purportedly sparked by claims that one of the bartenders had slept with Cardi B’s husband Offset.
