Rapper Azealia Banks Arrested – Report
Rap star Azealia Banks has reportedly been arrested in New York.
Sources told Page Six, the “212” hitmaker punched and bit a female security guard during an altercation at the Up&Down club, where Banks was attending a party on Tuesday night.
She was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of third-degree assault.
The news comes just two months after the 24-year-old allegedly assaulted a security guard at a club in Los Angeles in October.
Reports suggest the latest drama began when bouncers at the club failed to recognize Banks as she arrived at the invite-only party. She managed to get in but was thrown out a short time later after allegedly spitting at a bouncer.
Police arrived at the party and Banks was arrested and taken to the Sixth Precinct police station and held there for evaluation until Wednesday evening.
