Cardi's people were allegedly involved in a fight with two sisters who worked at the nightclub. It's been reported that Cardi's issues with the women stemmed from her believing that they had been involved with her husband, Offset. Prosecutors say Cardi ordered her entourage to attack the women, and bottles and chairs were thrown inside the establishment.

Prosecutors investigated the case further after Cardi turned down a plea deal.

The "I Like It" singer voluntarily turned herself in to authorities in October, was arrested and released that same day. Cardi was charged with assault and reckless endangerment at the time. Later, she turned down a plea deal offering her reduced charges and no jail time if she pleaded guilty to at least one charge. Prosecutors investigated further and claimed to have new information and presented the case to a grand jury.
