Crime


Cardi B turned herself in to local police in New York City, related to an incident this past summer where the Bronx star was involved in an altercation at a strip club. The hitmaker was charged with two misdemeanors: assault and reckless endangerment. Back in the summer, Cardi allegedly ordering an attack on two bartenders at Angels Strip Club in Queens NY. The bartenders, Jade and Baddie Gi, said their long-standing beef stems from Cardi believing Jade had slept with her husband Offset. The Migos were set to perform at the strip club that night, and Cardi came face-to-face with the two bartenders. At that point, the rapper allegedly ordered her crew to attack the pair by throwing bottles and chairs. The 2 women were both hurt but refused medical attention.

On Monday (Oct. 1), a blonde Cardi was all smiles as she turned herself into police custody. A mug shot was taken and she was fingerprinted. She is scheduled to be arraigned on October 29.

Suge Knight was sentenced to 28 years in prison, after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter in L.A. County Superior Court on Thursday (Sept. 20). The 53-year-old former Death Row Records CEO was accused in January 2015 of running over two men, killing one of them, Terry Carter, after a confrontation on the set of the movie biopic Straight Outta Compton. Knight will get credit for time served while awaiting trial, around 3 1/2 years. The Compton native will also be on parole for three years after his prison sentence.

TMZ reports Knight’s sentence is stiffer than a normal voluntarily manslaughter charge due to his prior felony conviction in 1997. Of total 28 years, five years were added due to Carter’s killing being deemed a “serious and violent” felony. An additional year was also added because the SUV truck Suge was driving is considered a deadly weapon.
