ASAP Rocky was hoping to get back to normal after returning from a peaceful vacation with his pregnant girlfriend, Rihanna. After landing at LAX, things went wrong for Rocky. The rapper was taken into custody shortly after getting off of his plane.

NBC News reports that Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, was detained today in connection to a shooting that occurred in November of 2021. Law enforcement sources said Rocky arrived on a private plane after his trip to Rihanna’s native Barbados. His attorney, Alan Jackson, did confirm the arrest.

The LAPD has been investigating ASAP Rocky in connection with the shooting that took place in November of 2021. The victim pointed out ASAP Rocky and two others as the perpetrators. Mayers shot three to four times, with one of the bullets grazing the victim’s left hand.

This is the first time the shooting has been reported in the media. The arrest was made by LAPD. ICE and Homeland Security agents assisted during the operation.

The shooting does not appear to have been deadly or even caused any serious injury. Still, it is very illegal to discharge a firearm in the middle of LA. That becomes an even bigger legal problem for Rocky because he was aiming at and hitting someone.

Details are still scarce on the matter. Rocky will likely be questioned and possibly charged. Time will tell what kind of consequences he may be facing.
