The “Bodak Yellow” performer turned herself into New York Police in October and was charged with two misdemeanors counts of reckless endangerment and one misdemeanor count of assault.

Joe Tacopina, the attorney representing the two female bartenders, released a statement to CNN about the case in October.
“Cardi B ordered and committed violent assaults against my clients, and is being called to justice for her crimes. Apparently, she thinks her celebrity status puts her above the law, since she has bragged to multiple people and on social media that she orchestrated these vicious attacks,” Tacopina said. “But reality is setting in, as justice does not care whether her name is Cardi B or Carly B, and she will now answer for her crimes.”
    Cardi B’s court date on Friday isn’t her only commitment, she is also expected to perform at New York’s Jingle Ball concert at Madison Square Garden Friday night.
