attempted assault charges.

A New York judge set aside an arrest warrant for Azealia Banks, after the rapper appeared in court on Tuesday (March 7). Banks’ entertainment attorney John Vafa confirmed the news with Billboard

The arrest warrant was issued because Banks failed to appear in court on Monday for a hearing on misdemeanor assault and attempted assault charges related to a 2015 incident where she allegedly attacked a female security guard at a New York nightclub.

Vafa issued a statement on Tuesday saying Banks had mixed up her court date, thinking it was Wednesday, and was unable to attend because she was in France for Paris Fashion Week.
