Rapper A$AP Rocky was slapped with assault and weapons charges on Monday August 15th

in connection with a November altercation with a former friend in Los Angeles.

The Manhattan native, born Rakim Mayers, was slapped with two counts of assault

with a semiautomatic firearm with allegations of personally using a firearm, according to prosecutors.

Rocky, 33, allegedly pointed a gun at onetime “A$AP Mob” rap collective collective member A$AP Relli and later fired twice in his direction.

“Discharging a gun in a public place is a serious offense that could have ended with tragic consequences

not only for the person targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood,” said Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón

A$AP Rocky was arrested in April when he and partner Rihanna touched down at Los Angeles International Airport.

The “Praise the Lord” artist had been taken into custody and charged with assault with a deadly weapon after arriving in LAX airport with girlfriend Rihanna in April. He was released on $550,000 bail.

“My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case

and determined that the addition of a special firearm allegation was warranted.”

Rocky has had multiple brushes with the law, including a two-week stint in Rikers Island for drug dealing.

Rocky previously found himself in legal hot water in 2019 when he was arrested and jailed in Sweden for a month for his involvement in a street fight with alleged “drug addicts.”
