RAPPER Cardi B has been officially arrested and charged with two misdemeanors, assault and reckless endangerment of two bar tenders, Jade and Baddie Gi, at Angels Strip Club in Queens, New York.

We're told she had a mug shot taken and was fingerprinted. The 'Bodak Yellow' hitmaker is scheduled to be arraigned on October 29.

Initially sources told TMZ that Cardi won't be arrested when she visits police but will receive a summons to appear in court on the charges.

According to Joe Tacopina, attorney for the alleged victims, "she continues to threaten them and clearly thinks her celebrity status is going to get her out of this.

"But it doesn't matter if her name is Cardi B or Carl B ... if she commits violent assaults she will be brought to justice."

It was previously claimed the 25-year-old rapper had a long-standing issue with bartenders Jade and Baddie Gi because of Cardi's mistaken belief Jade had slept with her husband Offset.

And when she came face-to-face with the sisters at the club, where Offset was performing with his band Migos, she allegedly ordered her entourage to attack them with bottles, chairs and a hookah smoking device.

The women were both hurt, but declined medical attention.

However, insiders claim the attack was ''spontaneous'' and triggered after someone threw a drink.

Jade previously claimed that on August 15, five people close to Cardi attacked her by ''grabbing her hair, punching her and hitting her with an ashtray''.

And on August 29, the sisters claimed Cardi's entourage threw bottles and chairs at them both.

While they admit Cardi did not physically attack them, they have claimed that she yelled ''I'm blood, I'll f**k you bitches up!''

The 'I Like It' hitmaker - who has 11-week-old daughter Kulture with her spouse - has denied the allegations against her and previously accused the sisters of seeking publicity.
