Cardi B turns herself in to police after fight at New York City strip club

WATCH: Cardi B was seen exiting a police station Monday after turning herself in for questioning about a fight at a New York City strip club.

Rapper Cardi B was charged on Monday by New York City police after an assault complaint claimed she was involved in a fight at a strip club in August.

Lawyer Jeff Kern said outside a Queens police station on Monday that he’s “aware of no evidence” that Cardi B “caused anybody any harm.”

“We expect that the matter is going to be resolved expeditiously,” Kern told reporters on Monday.

The New York Post reported that police were investigating Cardi B in connection with an attack on two bartenders at the club because of allegations they had sex with Cardi B’s husband, Offset of the Migos rap group.

The bartenders claimed someone from Cardi B’s entourage threw bottles and chairs at them, causing injuries, the newspaper reported. They have sued the rapper for damages.
