Azealia Banks Investigated for Attacking Security Guard

Azealia Banks is back in the headlines. The “212” rapper is under criminal investigation for allegedly attacking a security guard, who was throwing her out of a club.

According to TMZ, Banks was partying with friends at Break Room 86 in L.A. in late October when she allegedly became unruly and security asked her to leave. As she was exiting, security claims she attempted to pull the fire alarm.

Per the security camera footage, which TMZ has obtained, the security guard grabbed Banks as she was about to pull the fire alarm, and a brawl ensued between the security guard and Banks’ crew. After their scuffle, another security guard stepped in to break up the fight.

The LAPD has opened a criminal battery investigation. Banks has yet to address the incident, but it’s likely only a matter of time.

In September, she made headlines after she used a homophobic slur on a flight attendant on a Delta flight from New York to L.A.
