Cardi B was reportedly arrested in New York City on Monday morning in connection with a fight that took place in a strip club back in August.

According to TMZ, Cardi had been accused of allegedly ordering people to attack two female bartenders at a Flushing strip club in August. While the A-list rapper denied her involvement with the brawl for weeks, it looks like tides have turned, and she's ready to face the law for what went down that night.

Pictures emerged of Cardi leaving her hotel dressed in nude skirt with a thigh-high split and white blouse, and later her arriving at court. According to previously reported details, it was said Cardi only ordered the attack on her and her sister Baddie Gi, two bartenders at the club.

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

Cardi was at the strip club performing at the time. While both women were injured, they refused any medical attention.

The musician, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, was charged with two misdemeanors counts of reckless endangerment and assault, an NYPD spokesperson told CNN. He told TMZ that Cardi's dislike for his clients has gotten out of hand, and that the 25-year-old rapper falsely believes she is impervious to legal ramifications.
