A$AP Rocky has been charged with assault for the November 2021 shooting of a former friend in Hollywood.
According to the prosecution, during a tense argument in Hollywood last October, Rocky pointed a revolver at a guy who has since been identified as Relli. Rocky is accused of firing two rounds at Relli later on. Relli claims that the gunshot left him with injuries after being struck by bullet fragments.
Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón announced on Monday August 15, that the rapper is facing two counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm with allegations of personally using a firearm.
“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.
“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 will be arraigned on Wednesday Augusy 17. 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.
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.”
The rapper and Rihanna welcomed their first child together, a boy, on May 13. The pair started dating in 2020, and the “Umbrella” singer announced her pregnancy in January.
