Cardi B was arraigned on new felony charges in connection with a fight last year at a New York City strip club and she has pleaded not guilty.
She was indicted on fourteen charges which included 2 counts of felony attempted assault with intent to cause serious physical injury, misdemeanor reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy, and harassment. Cardi B had originally only been charged with misdemeanors. Prosecutors presented the case to a grand jury after she rejected a plea deal that would have given her a conditional discharge.
Two other defendants in the case who allegedly participated in the brawl also pleaded not guilty Tuesday to similar charges.
The judge set Sept. 9 as the next court date, but the rapper does not have to appear.
