Prosecutors say she threw a bottle at victims Jade and Baddie G and ordered her crew to attack the two women with more bottles and chairs. TMZ reports, Cardi had believed that one of the bartenders slept with her then husband, rapper Offset.

Cardi failed to attend a previous court date, prompting the judge to threaten her with a bench warrant if the didn't show up to Friday's hearing. She was released without bail, but an order of protection was issued against Cardi -- she'll have to stay away from the two bartenders.

Cardi has been nominated for five Grammys including album of the year.
