Azealia Banks can breathe a little easier after being cleared on charges that stemmed from an altercation between her and a bouncer in L.A. back in October.

You’ll recall, the “212” rapper was arrested back in December for allegedly spitting on and BITING a female security guard at nightclub Up & Down in NYC. She got into a verbal altercation with the guard that resulted in her being thrown out.
