She will face misdemeanor charges in connection with the Aug 29th fight at Angels Strip Club in Flushing.



Detectives are sorting out whether or not she was directly involved in the attack, which happened around 3 a.m.

Attorney Jeff Kern said outside the Queens police station that he's "aware of no evidence" that Cardi B "caused anybody any harm."

Cardi B smiled as she left the police station but did not comment.

Police say she and her entourage were present at the time of the dispute, during which chairs and bottles were thrown and the two bartenders were hit with debris.

Investigators say the fracas may have involved a romantic dispute.

A little over a week after the alleged assault, Cardi B was involved in an altercation with rapper Nicki Minaj at a New York Fashion Week party.

A person who witnessed the incident at the Harper's Bazaar Icons party said Minaj was finishing up a conversation when Cardi B tried to attack her.

Video surfaced showing Cardi B lunging toward someone and being held back. She also reportedly threw one of her shoes at Minaj.
