These days, it seems as though the police have nothing better to do than arrest rappers on any dirt they can find. For instance, A$AP Rocky faced assault charges earlier this year for shooting someone. While police arrested the rapper and put him in jail, he made bail at $550,000. Unfortunately, A$AP Rocky wasn’t through the woods yet. This week, police arrested the rap star again for the same case, this time hitting him with even bigger charges. At this point, he’ll be in jail for a little more than a couple of hours.
Friends For Life Or Enemies Forever?
On Monday, Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon made the statement that police arrested A$AP Rocky for a “heated” confrontation with an acquaintance that took place last November. The two had been arguing in Hollywood, which soon escalated to violence.
Allegedly, Rocky threatened “the acquaintance” with a semiautomatic gun. In a second attempt, the rapper drew his handgun and fired twice in the direction of the victim. At this time, the case remains ongoing as police further investigate the details of the altercation. Though, in a recent statement, George Gascon further commented, “Discharging a gun in a public place is a serious offense that could have ended with tragic consequences . . .” That just goes without saying.
A$AP Rocky Might Face A Huge Jail Sentencing
It’s only been a short while since A$AP Rocky and Rihanna welcomed their first child together. Furthermore, the two had plans to expand their family. Unfortunately, those plans might get cut short after the rapper’s latest stunt with police.
Currently, the rap star faces a total of two counts of assault. In addition to threatening someone with a semiautomatic gun, he was also charged for illegally using a firearm. With charges like these, the rapper could face a huge jail sentencing. Things aren’t looking good for the A$AP Rocky.
