Prosecuters claim that the New York native pointed a gun at a man during a heated discussion in November of 2021, and though no shots were fired then, during a follow-up confrontation the 33-year-old is said to have pulled the trigger and fired two shots in the alleged victim’s direction.

Rocky was arrested for the incident in April of this year, when he and then-pregnant girlfriend Rihanna were returning from a vacation in Barbados. At the time, cops were waiting for the “Fashion Killa” when he got off his private jet at LAX.
He made bail and has been free ever since, although A$AP Relli (a former friend who claims to be the victim) is now suing Rakim Mayers for assault and battery. According to reports, Relli was hit with bullet fragments and suffered injuries as a result of the shooting.
