December 15, 2015: Azealia Banks was thrown in jail after getting into a scuffle at a NYC nightclub. The rapper was reportedly prevented from entering a party at Up&Down nightclub because she didn't have the appropriate stamp and the female bouncer, apparently, did not recognize her. Eventually the manager let her in. But Banks, always a classy adult, went back and berated the guard, and then spit on her. She was promptly escorted out, but things didn't end there. On her way out the door, Banks bit the guard on the boob. Hard. She was taken to jail and later released.
