Azealia Banks

Scribe:  Samuel Otis



Azealia Banks has run into a little snag.  She missed a court date on Monday for an assault incident in 2015 that included nipple biting.  She did not show in court and the judge issued a bench warrant for her arrest.  Her attorney appeared on her behalf at the Manhattan Criminal Court and delivered the message “I can be back tomorrow if the court needs it."  The Gesture wasn’t enough to prevent the judge from issuing the warrant. 

According to reports, her entertainment lawyer said that Banks confused the court dates thinking the hearing date was 8 March instead of 6 March.  In a separate statement she says she apologizes and will apologize in person to the Court for missing her scheduled hearing.  The entertainer has been in France as a part of Fashion week festivities. 

She is being charged with misdemeanor assault, attempted assault, disorderly conduct and harassment for allegedly assaulting a security guard in a Manhattan night club where she is being accused to punching and biting the security guards breast.
