Cardi B Could Face Jail Time If She Doesn't Appear In Court For Bartender Attack
It looks like Cardi B could face the possibility of jail time if she fails to appear in court for a controversial altercation on two female bartenders.
The Bronx MC, who was allegedly involved in the August attack at a Queens strip club, reportedly failed to appear for her scheduled court appearance on Monday (Dec. 3). Per Reuters, the "I Like It" superstar's no-show led to the judge presiding over the case to threaten potential jail time if she skips again.
"You should inform her that if she doesn’t show up to the arraignment on December 7, that unless the circumstances change, then it’s very likely the court will issue a bench warrant for her arrest,” Judge Scott Dunn reportedly said to Cardi's lawyer, Jeff Kern. Kern noted that he rarely has direct communication with the rapper, but apologized for his client's absence.
“I can tell you my client knew of the date, but there was a previously standing commitment for today and tomorrow,” he reportedly said.
Cardi turned herself in to authorities back in October, after being accused of organizing an attack on two bartenders at the Angels Strip Club named Jade and Baddie Gi. Jade was accused of having an affair with Cardi's husband, Offset of Migos fame. The women are reportedly seeking legal action after being injured in the attack.
