24 year old rapper Azealia Banks has been arrested after allegedly assaulting a female security guard. The incident took place in the early hours of Wednesday in New York City. The New York Police Department revealed that around 12:46 a.m., Banks was escorted out of the venue “when she became verbally abusive and began to push the victim and bit victim on the breast causing swelling and redness.”
Authorities add that she “was arrested and charged with assault, disorderly conduct and harassment.”
According to a source who told E! News, the singer was not invited to the party but showed up with an invited guest. When Azealia tried to go downstairs to the party, the security apparently turned her away because she didn’t have the stamp she needed to enter. This provoked Banks, but she ended up getting stamped and gained access into the private party.
It was reported that Azealia was offended that the security “did not know who she was or recognize her as a celebrity”. The rapper decided to react aggressively by spitting in the owners face and assaulting the female security who attempted to escort her out of the event.
Banks was released Wednesday evening after seeing the judge.
