Rapper Cardi B faces felony charges over strip club fight

A source with knowledge of the case confirmed the information in an interview with ABC News. Cardi was arrested in October for allegedly ordering an attack on 2 strip club bartenders - Jade and Baddie G.

Rapper Cardi B's legal troubles may have gotten a bit bigger as the Bronx-based rapper was indicted by a grand jury stemming from an August 2018 altercation at Angels Strip Club in Flushing, New York. The outlet says the indictment for the case won't be unsealed until Tuesday afternoon. The indictment includes the previous charges of misdemeanour assault and reckless endangerment.

The "Please Me" rapper originally faces two misdemeanors for assault and reckless endangerment. The two have since agreed to stay positive after a fight broke out between both of their camps during New York Fashion Week in September.

The exact charges will remain under seal until the arraignment, which is scheduled on June 25 in Queens Criminal Court, the source said.

Cardi B's attorney Jeff Kern did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment, though he previously told reporters he was "aware of no evidence that she caused anybody any harm on that night".

Surveillance video of the event reportedly showed Cardi B throwing an ice bucket at the women.

As prosecutors explained to the media outlet, they chose to bring the matter to the grand jury after discovering new information during the course of their investigation, though they "would not be specific".
