Azealia Banks arrested after allegedly biting female bouncer’s breast

Incident reportedly took place in New York on Wednesday (December 16)

Azealia Banks was reportedly arrested in New York on Wednesday (December 16) after allegedly punching a female security guard outside a nightclub and “biting her in the boob”.

The New York Post reports that Banks has been charged with a misdemeanor of third-degree assault following the incident.

A source reportedly claims that Banks was “screaming at the top of her lungs, cursing” after being thrown out of an invite-only party.


The rapper is accused of spitting in a female bouncer’s face and biting her on the breast, “almost breaking her shirt” and “caus[ing] swelling and redness”.

Banks has not yet commented on the allegations.


Azealia Banks is also under investigation by the LAPD over an alleged fight with nightclub security staff during October.

The incident reportedly took place at the Break Room 86 club in Los Angeles where the club security claim that they asked the rapper to leave the club due to her “unruly behaviour”. They maintain that she tried to set off the club’s fire alarm.

Banks has previously admitted to NME that she has a confrontational side. “It’s not even a head thing,” she said, describing the red mist that comes with moments of confrontation, “it’s a physical thing. I start to get red hot.”
