What’s more important than getting the dates correct for a Manhattan Criminal Court appearance? Paris Fashion Week, of course, if you’re Azealia Banks. Banks was scheduled for a court appearance Monday for a 2015 incident at a New York City nightclub where she was accused of attacking a female security guard and biting her breast. But after she was a no-show, an arrest warrant was issued.
Of course, Banks’ attorney gave a good excuse for why she didn’t make it to court.
“Azealia Banks mistakenly believed she had a court appearance on March 8 instead of March 6,” the attorney stated, according to Pitchfork:
She was in France for fashion week due to meetings and other social gatherings and was not able to arrange her flight in time to appear today. She apologizes and will apologize in person to the court for missing her scheduled hearing. In addition, she attempted to appear via a New York attorney and through a close family member. Ms. Banks will go to the department to remedy the situation as soon as possible. Again, she apologizes for the inconvenience that may have caused the department.
Tell it to the judge!
I had such big hopes for Banks. I still bang “212” like it just came out.
