Azealia Banks’ boob-biting charge has been reduced

Infamous incident took place in 2015

Azealia Banks has had her charge reduced for biting a female bouncer’s breast in 2015.

She was previously convicted of misdemeanor assault and was ordered to take part in an anger management programme last year after she pleaded guilty.

The rapper was arrested in New York after allegedly punching a female security guard outside a nightclub and “biting her on the boob”.


It was claimed that Banks was “screaming at the top of her lungs, cursing” after being thrown out of an invite-only party. She was 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 was charged with a misdemeanor of third-degree assault, attempted assault, disorderly conduct and harassment violations.

Now, according to NY Daily News, the misdemeanor charge was withdrawn on Tuesday (April 3) and reduced to disorderly conduct.

Banks pleaded guilty to the disorderly conduct charge after finally completing the required courses, with the judge withdrawing the original charge and closing out the case.

She is currently preparing her ‘Fantasea II: The Second Wave’ album, which she plans to drop later this year.
