Cardi B Speaks Out After Encounter With NYPD

A fender bender resulted in a New York City cop placing Cardi B in a chokehold and slamming her against her car.

On Tuesday, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper took to Twitter and blasted the NYPD before deleting the tweet shortly afterwards.

I can’t believe this cop put me on a choke hold just now sh*t is crazy these cops don’t know how to day they job F**K 12

When a fan asked if the cop was white, Cardi B responded, “Yeup.”

TMZ reports:

Sources connected to the “Bodak Yellow” rapper say the incident went down around 6 PM near Columbus Circle — Cardi was riding in her new Bentley SUV when another driver hit her.

We’re told Cardi wasn’t driving, but she and a cousin — who was also in the Bentley — got out and started arguing with the other driver, and that’s when the NYPD officer got involved. We’re told the officer, who Cardi says was white, grabbed her with his arms around her neck and pinned her against the Bentley.

Once everyone involved calmed down, we’re told the cop let Cardi go … and left the accident scene without taking a report or issuing any citations.

SMH. I’m glad Cardi is okay.
