A$AP Rocky Charged with Assault for Allegedly Slapping Female Fan
Published Sep 04, 2013Harlem rap sensation A$AP Rocky has been living large since his well-received Long.Live.A$AP album, along with the rise of his A$AP Mob crew. Things took a dark turn today (September 4), however, as the performer was hit with charges of assault.
The charges stem from Rocky's performance at Jay Z's Made in America festival over the weekend in Philadelphia, where Rocky allegedly slapped a female fan in the face.
According to a report from TMZ, a woman claims that Rocky was moving through the crowd at the Philadelphia concert and, possibly frustrated at the fans pulling on his shirt, turned around and allegedly slapped a woman in the face with an open hand.
The woman suing Rocky claims she was injured in the alleged attack and suffered whiplash. A$AP Rocky was charged with misdemeanour simple assault today.
