Cardi B appeared in criminal court in New York City Friday on the first day of her trial on misdemeanor assault charges, and there is a possibility the charges could be upgraded.

She told the judge she would not testify, and prosecutors announced that her case is now before a grand jury.

The “I Like It” rapper was arrested for allegedly throwing bottles and chairs at two female bartenders last August in the Angels strip club in Queens, New York. The altercation is believed to have started after the Grammy-winning artist accused the two women of having sex with her husband, Offset.

She previously rejected an offer to plead guilty to third-degree assault and receive a conditional discharge.

Before appearing in court, Cardi dropped her single “Press.”
