A$AP Rocky Hit with Assault Charge
Published Dec 31, 2012Back in the summer, A$AP Rocky made headlines over a physical altercation with a couple of photographers in a New York City clothing store. While that case has now been settled, another patron from the shop involved in that dust-up has filed a lawsuit against the Harlem rapper claiming he too was assaulted.
As TMZ reports, Shenick Alcine claims that on July 19 he was involved in an altercation with A$AP at the NYC shop. The pair apparently began being filmed by the two aforementioned photographers, leading Rocky to turn his attention to the photogs. Alcine also claims to have seen Rocky using "unspecified illegal drugs" before being allegedly attacked by the rapper.
Rocky has yet to respond to these latest charges.
Rocky had previously pled not guilty to second degree robbery charges, but pled guilty to attempted grand larceny. The larceny plea, which had the artist admitting that he grabbed one of the photographers camera, yielded the A$AP Mob leader a three-day community service rap and a $250 fine, while the previous assault and battery charges were dropped.
