Banks, 24, was being taken out of the Up and Down club on West 14th Street just before 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday when she allegedly “became verbally abusive” and attacked the 28-year-old employee, police said. She was released without bail at her arraignment late Wednesday. Banks, who grew up in Harlem, was charged with third-degree assault, third-degree attempted assault, disorderly conduct and second-degree harassment, according to the criminal complaint. The victim suffered redness and swelling but refused medical attention, and a temporary order of protection was issued. Banks’ next court appearance is scheduled for Feb. 2. An attorney for Banks did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Banks, a Harlem native, has publicly feuded with several other celebrities. She released her album “Broke with Expensive Taste” last year. By Alison Fox firstname.lastname@example.org Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Comments We're revamping our Comments section.
