ASAP Rocky Arrested At LAX For Alleged Role In Shooting
After landing at LAX in a private plane from Barbados where he was vacationing with pregnant girlfriend Rihanna on Wednesday morning, the rapper A$AP Rocky was detained by police in relation to a November 2021 shooting incident. He was apparently met by cops at the terminal and escorted out in handcuffs.
The LAPD confirmed that Rocky, born Rakim Mayers was arrested and that his charge was assault with a deadly weapon. It also included a recounting of the shooting which occurred on the night of November 6, 2021. Police said it began as “an argument between two acquaintances,” and resulted in “the suspect firing a handgun at the victim. The victim sustained a minor injury from the incident and later sought his medical treatment.”
According to other reports, the victim was shot at three or four times and thought a bullet had grazed his hand. Cops were even photographed removing potential evidence from Rocky’s L.A. home around midday Wednesday

Rocky had been vacationing in Barbados with Rihanna, a native of the country who was also reportedly with Rocky when he was detained at LAX. They’ve been living it up after the singer revealed she was pregnant in January. A source close to both artists also told TMZ that recent rumors of Rocky cheating were not true.
