Cardi B claims an officer with the NYPD put her in a chokehold on Tuesday!
The Bodak Yellow rapper took to Twitter in since-deleted tweets, explaining her shock over how she was mistreated!
And according to TMZ, it all occurred after the 24-year-old’s Bentley was hit by another car at around 6 p.m. in the city. It’s said while she wasn’t driving, she and her cousin got out of the car, arguing with the other driver.
The cop got involved then, grabbing her to place her in the choke hold, even pinning her against her SUV. It wasn’t until they all calmed down that the officer, who is said to be white, let her go.
A report wasn’t taken, and no citations were issued. More importantly, it doesn’t sound like the star was injured in the choke hold, which was supposed to have been banned years ago.
Anyway, after the scary incident, Cardi went on Twitter before deleting her tweets minutes later! You can see them (below):

A spokesperson for the NYPD shared with NY Daily News:
“The NYPD was made aware of a tweet made by rapper Cardi B, which was since deleted, and indicated an alleged interaction between the NYPD and her. The NYPD has no record or any other information to support the validity of this claim.”
Even if Cardi doesn’t take legal action, we wish she’d speak up about what happened!
