A$AP Rocky is in the news again.
The rap star was arrested Wednesday morning at Los Angeles International Airport in connection with a November 2021 shooting in Hollywood.
Detectives with the Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery-Homicide Division took the 33-year-old hip-hop artist and L.A. resident, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, into custody on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, the agency said in a news release.

Rocky had just landed aboard a private jet from Barbados when he was arrested by the LAPD, who waited for him to land, a high-ranking police official told ABC News.
The arrest stems from an argument and shooting that occurred about 10:15 p.m. on Nov. 6 near the intersection of Selma and Arglye avenues, the LAPD statement said.
Rocky is accused of firing a handgun at an acquaintance, who sustained a minor injury and later sought medical treatment, police said. Rocky and two other men ran after the gunfire, police said.
Cops also searched Rocky’s home in L.A., using a battering ram to get through his front gate.
Rocky and his girlfriend Rihanna announced in late January that they were expecting their first child. The couple was also recently spotted in Barbados (Rihanna’s home country) on vacation.
Days earlier rumors were swirling that the 33-year-old cheated on Rihanna thanks to an unsubstantiated post by fashion blogger Louis Pisano. He has since apologized.
