Azealia Banks ‘arrested’.

The 24-year-old was charged with a class A misdemeanor for second-degree harassment for physical contact, disorderly conduct for a fight and violent behavior, and assault with the intent to cause physical injury, according to police records obtained by People. Rapper Azealia Banks was reportedly arrested for third-degree misdemeanour assault on Wednesday (16Dec15) after biting into the breast of a female security guard outside a New York City club.

A source inside the club said the rapper became incensed when she was told she needed to get a hand stamp and was barred from entering a private birthday party for one of the club’s owners, Ronnie Madra. The alleged eyewitness claims Azealia snapped, punched the guard and then started “biting her in the boob” after she was thrown out of the club around 12.30am. 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. A month earlier, she was Banks was again caught on camera, this time calling a Delta Airlines employee a “f—ing f—-t” while getting off a plane. The “212” singer then allegedly directed racial slurs and epithets toward two security guards and punched and “spit in the [female bouncer’s] face” before biting the guard’s breast as she was forced to leave the club. Banks was finally arrested when, after threatening to “call the cops,” she flagged down an NYPD Traffic Enforcement car and brought them to the club to confront security again. 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.
