The American rapper A$AP Rocky, companion of Rihanna, was arrested Wednesday at the airport of Los Angeles, suspected of involvement in a shooting last November, announced the police.
His real name is Rakim Mayers, the musician was arrested by the Los Angeles police following an argument between two acquaintances on November 6, 2021 in Hollywood, in which the suspect fired a handgun at the victim.
A$AP Rocky, 33, was arrested, according to the news site TMZ, when he got off a private jet from Barbados, where his partner, singer Rihanna, with whom he is expecting a child, is from.
The victim of last November's shooting(s) has not been named by police and suffers from minor injuries. The suspect, who left alongside two other men, was later identified as Rakim Mayers.
The latter's lawyer did not immediately respond to requests from AFP.
A$AP Rocky had been sentenced in August 2019 to suspended prison for violence after a street brawl in Stockholm.
