Cardi B has been indicted by a grand jury. The platinum-selling rapper could face jail time from an incident that took place at a New York strip club, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.

Cardi B was indicted on 14 charges, which included two counts of felony attempted assault. She also was charged with a misdemeanor for reckless endangerment, assault, criminal solicitation, conspiracy and harassment.

Police said Cardi B instigated a fight at a strip club in Queens, New York, in August 2018. Cardi B allegedly was upset because she believed that a stripper who worked at the club had previously had sex with Offset.

She also allegedly encouraged members of her entourage to start a fight that ended in a brawl. Some in the strip club threw chairs, bottles and hookah water pipes. Two women were injured during the melee.

Prosecutors offered the Grammy Award-winning rapper a deal where she would plead guilty to one misdemeanor count and be released under certain conditions instead of serving time in jail.

Cardi B is expected to headline the BET Experience in Los Angeles this weekend.
