Just In: A$AP Rocky Arrested At Los Angeles Airport
According to NBC News, the rapper was arriving on a private plane from Barbados, where he had been on vacation with his pregnant girlfriend, the singer Rihanna.
Rocky, born Rakim Mayers, flew in to Los Angeles on a private jet, where he was met by officers at the terminal and taken away in handcuffs.
The arrest stems from a November 2021 shooting, where an alleged victim claimed Rocky shot at them 3 or 4 times — grazing his left hand.
Mayers’ attorney, Alan Jackson, confirmed that his client had been arrested.
The rapper had been under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Departments for a November 6 shooting near Vista Del Mar and Selma Ave. around 10:20 pm.
The shooting victim, who survived, later told police that Rocky, who was walking with two others, approached him with a handgun on the street.
The victim claimed the rapper shot at him three to four times and believed one of the bullets grazed his left hand, according to police reports.
