Azealia Banks has reportedly been arrested following a physical altercation with a bouncer in New York on Wednesday morning.
According to a Page Six, the alleged attack took place outside of a private party at Up & Down nightclub around 12:30 AM.
According to a source, the incident broke out following an argument over Banks not having a hand-stamp to an invite-only party.
“It was an invite-only party,” the source said. “You needed a stamp to get in.” The source, who claims the bouncers “didn’t recognize Banks,” says the rapper was “screaming at the top of her lungs, cursing about who she was and that she was on Rihanna’s album.”
Shortly after, Banks reportedly “spit in the female bouncer’s face before biting the same woman in the boob, almost ripping her shirt, as they took her out.”
After leaving the club, Banks allegedly threatened to call the cops and later “punched” the female bouncer in front of a police officer before asking, “Why are you arresting me?”
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.
