Rapper ASAP Rocky Arrested After Stepping Out Of Plane On Return From Barbados

After stepping off a private plane at LAX, rapper ASAP Rocky was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon in connection with a November incident in which Los Angeles police say he shot at a person in Hollywood.

The musician arrived at Los Angeles International Airport on his way back from Barbados, where he was vacationing with singer Rihanna, his girlfriend who is pregnant with the couple’s first child.

Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, was taken into custody by LAPD Robbery Homicide Division and booked on suspicion of assault, according to LAPD Capt. Jonathan Tippet.

Following the arrest, Los Angeles police detectives searched a home belonging to the rapper seeking evidence in connection with the case. According to law enforcement sources, detectives have had the artist under surveillance for some time and tracked his return from Barbados.

Detectives removed several boxes of evidence from the house, law enforcement sources told The Times.

The assault allegations stem from a Nov. 6, 2021, incident in which an argument between two acquaintances occurred near Selma and Argyle avenues in the Hollywood area around 10:15 p.m. The argument escalated and resulted in one person firing a handgun at the other, according to law enforcement. The victim sustained a minor injury and later sought medical treatment.
