Prosecutors Won't Charge Russell Crowe For Azealia Banks Hotel Incident
(AllHipHop News) According to reports, Russell Crowe will not have to face battery charges for a physical altercation with Azealia Banks.
The Academy Award winner was accused of assaulting Banks, calling her a "n-gger," and spitting on her dat the Beverly Hills Hotel in October.
Crowe admitted to removing Banks from his suite after she allegedly threatened guests at a party.
A charge evaluation worksheet from the Los Angeles County District Attorney's office determined a jury would likely "find the physical escort out of the room was justified to prevent the imminent violence threatened by Banks."
Several witnesses apparently told authorities Banks was drunk or high on drugs.
The "212" performer was brought to the gathering by Wu-Tang Clan member RZA.
RZA did acknowledge Crowe spit at AB, but he said Banks physically attacked the Gladiator actor.
