ASAP Rocky charged with felony assault

Last night rapper, and more importantly, boyfriend and baby daddy with Rihanna, ASAP Rocky was charged with felony assault with a firearm in connection with a shooting in November in Hollywood.

Why do all Rihanna’s men have serious anger control issues?

Real name is Rakim Mayers, Rocky faces two counts of assault with a semiautomatic firearm with allegations of personally using a firearm. He is slated to be arraigned Wednesday in a downtown L.A. courtroom.

“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,” said Dist. Atty. George Gascón in announcing the charges. “My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special firearm allegation was warranted.”

We’ll be following this closely.
