A$AP Rocky was arrested as he flew into LAX Wednesday morning … TMZ has confirmed.
Eyewitnesses at the airport tell TMZ the rapper flew into Los Angeles from Barbados on a private jet, where he was met by cops at the terminal and taken away in handcuffs. We’re told he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon with a gun.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the arrest stems from a November 6, 2021 incident, where an alleged victim claimed Rocky shot at them 3 or 4 times — grazing his left hand — NBC Newswas first with the info.
Unclear exactly where the alleged shooting happened … Rocky performed at Complex Con in Long Beach on November 7, Rihanna was in attendance.
As we told you, Rocky and a pregnant Rihannahave been living it up in her native country, jet skiing (while RiRi watched with binoculars) and hanging with friends and family.
A recent Twitter rumor that the two had split because he cheated was 100% not true — and evidence that all is good between them was shown in the vacation pics where they’re clearly having a great time.
It’s unclear when Rihanna’s expected to give birth, but has said she’s in her third trimester. The couple announced the pregnancy back in January.
Cops did conduct a search at A$AP Rocky‘s home in LA with a search warrant, as you can see an officer leaving with a box of potential evidence, though it’s unclear what was inside.
Law enforcement sources say Rocky was taken to LAPD HQ for questioning where he lawyered up … he’ll be officially booked soon.
Cops also say A$AP knew the alleged victim, and the alleged shooting happened after an argument between the two. The LAPD says they worked to corroborate the info the victim told them about the alleged incident, which helped them to identify Rocky as the suspect.
