Cardi B Says Police Put Her in a Choke Hold, NYPD Says Her Story’s Made Up

Bronx rapper and reality star Cardi B tweeted that a police officer put her in a chokehold Tuesday evening and slammed her against their car. The event allegedly took place near Columbus Circle after a car accident where someone hit her new Bentley with her and her cousin in the car. After getting out arguing with the other driver, Cardi says a white officer put his hand around her neck and pinned her to her car. She deleted her tweet minutes after posting it just as her cousin did the same.

When you have the #2 song in the country on the radio, the chances are if you were involved in such an incident, there would be a lot of witnesses and we’d all mostly know about it, right? Well NYPD checked all area footage and found no evidence of the event. They even called for her to speak up about what happened. So far she’s shown no desire to tell her side of the story and no word from her camp. We’re not sure what’s going on here but we’re just hoping if it’s press she’s looking to make, there are better ways to do it than making up events with the police.

Glitzers, who do you believe? Cardi B or NYPD?
