Cardi B turns herself in to police over nasty strip club brawl

"Cardi is heading down to the precinct to claim her name and innocence", said an insider. It stems from an August 29 incident at Angels Strip Club in Flushing, N.Y., during which two bartenders, sisters Jade and Baddie Gi, claim they were assaulted by Cardi B's posse.

The "Bodak Yellow" hit maker was charged with two misdemeanors, assault and reckless endangerment.

UPDATE 10/01/18 1:00PM EST: Cardi B reportedly turned herself into the NYPD around 10:00am EST.

The fight happened August 29 at Angels Strip Club in the College Point neighborhood, where Migos was performing.

According to TMZ, Jade and Baddie Gi claimed that Cardi B thought Jade had sex with Offset, her husband. The Bronx rapper will be ordered to appear in court to speak on her involvement in the incident. She was fingerprinted and ordered to take a mugshot, TMZ reports.

"We're aware of no evidence that she caused anybody any harm on that night", Jeff Kern, an attorney representing Cardi B told press outside the police precinct. The two women were reportedly hurt but refused medical attention.

Video circulating on social media shows Cardi B lunging toward someone and being held back at Harper's Bazaar Icons party. (She and rapper Offset recently welcomed a daughter.) Minaj called that "a bunch of lies". They say a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah waters pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the bartender and another employee.
