Cardi B pleads not guilty to felony strip club fight charges

Rapper Cardi B pleaded not guilty to felony charges stemming from an alleged attack on a bartender at a Queens strip club. The 26-year-old appeared in Queens criminal court Tuesday after being indicted by a grand jury, CBS New York reported. 

Police said Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, and her entourage were at the club Aug. 29 when she argued with a bartender. They said a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, causing minor injuries to the woman and another employee.

She was previously facing misdemeanor charges but prosecutors presented the case to a grand jury after the rapper rejected a plea deal. She faces two felony counts of attempted assault.
