    Cardi B leaves Queens County Criminal Court today in New York. The rapper made an appearance in connection with a melee she was involved in at a New York strip club.

NEW YORK >> Cardi B has made a brief appearance in a New York City courtroom in a case stemming from a strip club melee last fall.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper’s check-in lasted all of a minute today. She’s due back April 4 on misdemeanor reckless endangerment and assault charges.

She posed for photographers lining the frigid courthouse steps.

Police say Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, and her entourage were at the club around 3 a.m. Oct. 1 when she argued with a 23-year-old woman bartender.

They say a fight broke out in which chairs, bottles and hookah pipes were thrown, slightly injuring the woman and another employee.

Cardi B is performing at a Super Bowl concert this week in Atlanta. She starts a Las Vegas residency in the spring.
