Cardi B Released without Bail After Showing for Court to Avoid Warrant for Arrest

Rapper Cardi B appeared in Queens criminal court Friday to be arraigned on charges of two counts of reckless endangerment and one count of assault.

Police say Cardi B and her entourage were at the Angels Gentlemen's Club when she argued with a 23-year-old bartender at about 3.30 a.m. on August 29.

Judge Dunn did issue an order of protection for the Wattley sisters and told Cardi B to "please be very careful" with social media, pointing out that even virtual contact "will result in your arrest".

But the judge said she was not a flight risk.

Cardi B must not contact, in person or through social media, the victims of a melee she was involved in at a NY strip club, a judge ordered Friday.

Cardi B's appearance Friday enabled her to avoid arrest, after she failed to appear as requested last Monday, and a judge threatened to issue a bench warrant for her.

Millane called his daughter a "fun-loving, family-oriented daughter" and urged anyone with information to contact police. He also said investigators were looking into her credit card activity to see the last time she made a transaction.

She's scheduled to be back in court next month.

The police report says a fight broke out during which chairs, bottles and hookah water pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the bartender and another female employee.

Cardi, real name Belcalis Almanzar, will be hoping to finally take a gramophone home after receiving two nominations at the Grammys 2018 for best rap performance and best rap song, but failing to win one. Her single, "I Like It", was nominated for a Grammy Award.

Cardi B, her feet bare beneath a voluminous red Dolce & Gabbana gown, was seen leaving the party with what appeared to be a bump on her head.

Earlier this week, the Bodak Yellow singer announced on social media that she and husband rapper Offset had separated.
