Azealia Banks arrested after allegedly biting the breast of a female security guard
According to E! News rapper, Azealia Banks was arrested early Wednesday morning after allegedly assaulting a female security guard outside Meatpacking club Up&Down. A witness at the venue said that the 24-year-old was not invited to the party but came with an invited guest.
When Azealia tried to go downstairs to the party, security turned her away and told her she had to get a stamp to enter. Azealia got upset about this, but ended up getting stamped and gained access into the private party.
Once inside, it appeared that she was offended that the security did not know who she was or recognize her as a celebrity. This resulted in an altercation, which another insider said involved her spitting in the owner's face, and it ultimately led to her being escorted out by the female security guard who became the victim of Banks' alleged assault.
The New York Police Department said that at 12:46 a.m., Banks was escorted out of the venue "when she became verbally abusive and began to push the victim and bit the victim on the breast, causing swelling and redness."
Authorities added that she "was arrested and charged with assault, disorderly conduct and harassment." Banks was released Wednesday evening after seeing the judge.
