A$AP Rocky Arrested at LAX Airport
A$AP Rocky was reportedly arrested on Wednesday, 20 April, in connection with a shooting last year.
The 33-year-old rapper – real name Rakim Meyers – was taken into custody at LAX Airport in Los Angeles, California, after returning from a vacation getaway in Barbados with his pregnant girlfriend, Rihanna.
Rocky was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon by the Los Angeles Police Department. Later that day, he was released after $550 000 on bail.
His arrest comes six months after a shooting incident occurred in California; according to the victim, Rocky – along with two others – approached him with a handgun on the street.
The “Everyday” rapper then allegedly shot at the victim three-to-four times, with one of the bullets grazing his left hand.
“The case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office for filing consideration,” the police said.
This isn’t the first time that Rocky has had a run-in with the law: in 2019, he was convicted of assault and spent a month in a Swedish jail after he and his entourage participated in a street brawl with two local men.
