A New York City grand jury has returned an indictment against Cardi B, a source has said.
The exact charges made against the ‘Press’ rapper were not immediately clear, ABC News reported.
Cardi, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, rejected a plea deal in April. She would not have had to do any jail time by accepting the deal.
The case would have also been completely dismissed if she had met certain conditions, according to The Blast.

Cardi initially faced a misdemeanor charge of reckless endangerment and assault for the August 2018 incident at the Angel’s Strip Club in Queens.
Sisters Baddie Gi and Jade, who work as bartenders at the strip club, claimed the rapper ordered an attack on the women because she believed one of them had an affair with her husband Offset.
The sisters alleged that a member of Cardi B’s entourage threw bottles, chairs, and hookahs in the club at them.
Cardi was allegedly caught on camera tossing an ice bucket at the women. The songstress surrendered to police in October.
The rapper and Offset secretly married in September 2017. Their daughter Kulture was born in July.
Cardi and the Migos star split in December, but just weeks later she coyly told reporters that they were ‘working things out’.
And things are clearly going well for the pair, who both recently just bought five houses in Atlanta together.
