Cardi B may have landed herself in hot water after a recent alleged altercation at a strip club in Queens, New York, reports TMZ. She turned herself in to the NYPD Monday, Oct. 1. Reports prior to the surrender said Cardi  will not be arrested but rather given a court summons.

Below is a clip, with some pretty wretched and presumptuous questioning from a paparazzo. ("Do you think this is gonna teach you a lesson about violence, Cardi?")

At the Angels Strip Club, where Migos were performing, Cardi allegedly ordered an attack on two bartenders, one of whom she believes she slept with her husband, Offset. While Migos were playing, Cardi reportedly had her posse attack the two women with bottles, chairs, and a hookah. The incident occurred after a drink was thrown, and was not premeditated. Both targets were hurt.

Cardi is expected to be charged with two misdemeanors, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct. Back in August, it was reported that the same women had accused Cardi of ordering attacks on them, with one explaining that Cardi's crew "viciously attacked her, grabbing her hair, punching her, and hitting her with an ashtray" while she was working. 

Cardi was captured leaving the precinct smiling.

At the time, the two bartenders made a police report, triggering a formal investigation after hiring lawyer Joe Tacopina. Cardi did not get physical during the incident, but she did reportedly yell, "I'm blood, I'll fuck you bitches up."
