According to reports, the arrest was made at a California airport, LAX, just after his much-publicized trip to Barbados with his pregnant girlfriend, Rihanna. The arrest was made possible by the combined efforts of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations unit and LAPD.

According to the report, a survivor from the said shooting incident narrated how A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, had approached him on a street while walking with two others, brandishing a firearm and shot him three to four times. He went on to say that one of the bullets grazed his left hand. Although his incarceration is yet to be confirmed by an LAPD spokesperson, ICE eventually responded to a request for comment by Page Six.

This isn't the first time the 'Praise the Lord' rapper has been arrested. He had been involved in a street brawl with 'drug addicts' while in Sweden, leading to his arrest and incarceration. He and two members of his crew had been ordered to be released until the Judge had produced the results in a high profile assault case that got the attention of the then President of the United States, Donald Trump. This incident occurred in 2019, and A$AP Rocky spent a month behind bars. He would later narrate how it was a humbling experience for him.

As of recent, the location of the said November 6 2021, shooting has not been revealed.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky had been friends for a long while before their friendship became a serious romantic affair. We hope that A$AP be released on time to witness the birth of his baby and not be a dad behind bars.
