The rapper is accused of using a gun personally on two charges of assault with a semiautomatic weapon.
A$AP Rocky has been charged in relation to an alleged gunshot in Los Angeles in November 2021, according to the announcement made by Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón on Monday (15 August).
The rapper, real name Rakim Mayers, is accused of using a firearm personally on two counts of assault with a semiautomatic weapon.
According to other sources, “dispersion of a firearm in a public location is a severe violation that might have ended with disastrous results not only for the individual targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood.” “After carefully examining the facts in this case, my office concluded that it was appropriate to add a particular firearm charge.”
In 2021, Rocky was arrested in connection with an LAPD investigation into a non-fatal gunshot in Hollywood and freed after posting a $550,000 bail. The rapper and his acquaintance got into a heated dispute, which allegedly resulted in Rocky discharging a semi-automatic weapon. According to KTLA, there was little injury to the victim.
According to insiders, Rocky was en route from a holiday in Barbados with Rihanna to Los Angeles on a private jet when he was detained.
Rocky was detained and accused of assault in Sweden in 2019. According to the prosecution, the victim had been punched, kicked, and struck with a bottle. He was imprisoned for over five weeks before being let out, although he was later proved guilty.
On May 13, the rapper and Rihanna gave birth to a son, their first child together. The “Umbrella” singer confirmed her pregnancy in January after the couple began dating.
