Rapper Azealia Banks was arrested early Monday morning after allegedly assaulting a security guard at a Manhattan nightclub.
The 24-year-old was charged with a class A misdemeanor for second-degree harassment for physical contact, disorderly conduct for a fight and violent behavior, and assault with the intent to cause physical injury, according to police records obtained by People. In addition to those three counts, she was also charged with the intent to cause physical injury later that same day in an arraignment.
Page Six reports that Banks was removed from the Meatpacking establishment Up&Down. She reportedly started arguing with bouncers after being denied immediate entry into an invite-only party for club owner Ronnie Madra.
The "212" singer then allegedly directed racial slurs and epithets toward two security guards and punched and "spit in the [female bouncer’s] face” before biting the guard's breast as she was forced to leave the club.
In September, Banks was caught on tape during an altercation with a Delta flight attendant, whom she called a "fucking faggot" after she said a fellow passenger hit her in the face. No one involved pressed charges.
Banks, of course, first drew attention for her music, especially the infectious club banger "212."
Representatives for Banks did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
