Azealia Banks ‘arrested’.

Azealia Banks was arrested outside a Manhattan nightclub Wednesday after allegedly biting and punching a female security guard. The rapper was charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, following the incident, which took place after the rapper was reportedly denied entry into a private party at the Up&Down club. The “Chasing Time” rapper, 24, was reportedly spotted spitting in the woman’s face, punching her, and “biting her in the boob,” a source told Page Six. “She bites the [bouncer] in the breast, almost breaking her shirt … as they took her out,” another source told the site. After being barred from the private party Wednesday, Banks soon began “screaming at the top of her lungs, cursing” and using racial slurs at the bouncers, according to the paper.

Apparently the violence was initiated because the two bouncers, one male and one female, didn’t recognise Azealia when she went to the front of the invite-only party’s line. At this point it’s claimed police were out of the picture entirely until Azealia brought them into the equation herself by yelling, “I’m gonna call the cops!”, while walking to a parked New York City Police Department Traffic Enforcement car.

The eyewitness states she was bemused while being dragged away by cops after assaulting the guard, asking “Why are you arresting me?” – she was then taken to the Sixth Precinct police station and held there for evaluation until the evening. Wednesday’s arrest is actually Banks’ second altercation with a security guard in recent months: In November, the LAPD investigated the rapper for criminal battery and assault stemming from an October incident at Los Angeles’ Break Room 86.
