Azealia Banks Arrested for Assault After Biting a Bouncer's Breast (Report)

Rapper Azealia Banks was reportedly arrested outside of Manhattan nightclub Up&Down on Wednesday (December 16) after biting a bouncer’s breast.

A source told Page Six that the 24-year-old rapper was seen “biting her in the boob…She bites the [bouncer] in the breast, almost breaking her shirt … as they took her out.”

“It was an invite-only party,” a witness said. “You needed a stamp to get in.” Azealia apparently freaked out at the bouncer when she didn’t have the right stamp to get into the private party.

Azealia was apparently charged with a misdemeanor third-degree assault. She was released from prison on Wednesday evening.

Azealia made headlines earlier this year when she screamed a homophobic slur at a flight attendant.

Azealia Banks Screams Homophobic Slur at Flight Attendant, Gets in Physical Fight on Plane (Video)

UPDATE: Azealia has sent out a series of tweets about her actions in the video.

Rapper Azealia Banks went nuts on a flight attendant while trying to deboard her flight very early Tuesday (September 22).

The 24-year-old rapper had landed in Los Angeles and was trying to quickly exit the plane when a French couple was blocking her way out. The French man put his hand out when she tried to get by, and apparently, Azealia went ballistic.

Eyewitnesses say Azealia spit in his face, punched him, and clawed at his shirt, TMZ reports. Then, other passengers on the flight filmed her speaking to a flight attendant. The video below contains profane language and is very NSFW.

The police were called and they spoke to her at baggage claim, but the French couple did not press charges. So far, Azealia has not commented on the situation via her Twitter, where she is normally very vocal.
