A$AP Rocky arrested at LA airport

A$AP Rocky is making negative headlines again after the rapper was arrested at Los Angeles Airport for a shooting last year.

A$AP Rocky is back in the news as rumors surfaced that the rapper had cheated on his pregnant girlfriend, pop star Rihanna. The musician couple denied the rumors and took a short vacation to Rihanna’s native Barbados. Upon returning from the Caribbean island, Rocky, aka Rakim Mayers, was arrested on a private jet.

The accusations? In November 2021, the 33-year-old was said to have been involved in a shooting in LA. An acquaintance of his claims that Mayers shot him three or four times with a pistol. A projectile is said to have grazed the man’s left hand. The rapper and two other participants then fled, and the injured man had to seek medical treatment.

It’s not the first time the rapper has gotten into trouble with the law. The New York-born musician was arrested in 2019 in the Swedish capital Stockholm after a street fight. He was released after more than a month in custody and was later given a suspended sentence for assault.

If convicted, A$AP Rocky now faces up to four years in state prison and a $10,000 fine.
