NYC hip-hop artist Joey Bada$$ has been charged in an Australian court with assaulting a security guard before a performance last week. The 19-year-old performer was headed for the stage at the Falls Music and Arts Festival near the tourist town of Byron Bay Friday when he was asked by a security guard to prove his identity, police said in a statement. Bada$$ allegedly punched the guard, breaking his nose. He was charged with assault causing bodily harm and spent the night in police custody. He could be sentenced to a maximum of five years in prison if convicted.
