Cardi B has avoided jail time, but she must now serve 15 days of community service and stay away from the two women who were assaulted in the New York strip club brawl. The Grammy winner turned herself in to police just two months after the brawl, but was originally facing only misdemeanour charges. The rapper initially rejected a plea deal, which the Queens district attorney’s office had offered her in April. The deal would have allowed Cardi B to receive a conditional discharge and 15 days of community service.
On top of her community service requirement, the rapper was sentenced to a three-year order of protection. The alleged brawl started after she was caught ordering a pal to attack a bartender sister for allegedly sleeping with Offset. While answering questions about the plea deal, Cardi B admitted to punching the bartender, yanking her hair and slamming her head against the bar.
Cardi B pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor charges, including assault and disorderly conduct. Ten other counts were dismissed. In her statement, Cardi B explained that she was simply being accountable for her actions. She did not say whether she would go to jail or serve a probation, but she has agreed to do community service and take a class on the condition she completes it.
After being found guilty of misdemeanor assault and reckless endangerment, Cardi B will serve 15 days of community service and complete a protective order. In addition, two of the victims have received full orders of protection. The incident occurred in October 2018 at Angels Strip Club in Queens. During the brawl, Cardi B and her entourage argued with a bartender. As a result, chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown and one of the bartenders was injured.
On top of her public service, Cardi B donated a hundred thousand dollars to a Bronx middle school. This will be used to help the school provide after-school programs for kids like tutoring and music. She also made a surprise appearance at the event.
