Rumor Mill: ASAP Rocky Arrested in New York City – Charged for Attempted Robbery

Posted on July 20th, 2012

Photos and scarce reports have just surface of ASAP Rocky being arrested moments ago in New York City. No word on what the official reason behind the arrest is, but sources are saying it was due to a scuffle. News is coming in as the night goes on, and we will update when more information is received. Hit the jump to view another image of the arrest and any updates.

UPDATE: It has been confirmed that ASAP was indeed taken into NYPD custody for an apparent brawl with two amateur photographers. Rocky was seen getting into a verbal dispute with a NY citizen, and the two photographers ran up to the scene to take pictures of the situation. Shortly after, ASAP, and the other person pictured, began to physically fight the two photographers. They both suffered cuts and bruises, with one being sent to the hospital. NYPD is currently charging him with attempted robbery, with no word on what or if he was trying to steal.

    Racial profiling? Are you kidding me? You’re right, because he’s famous and dark skinned they should of just sent him home with a warning else they’d appear to be racist. (sarcasm) Most likely he was trying to steal the camera/phone the victims were using to take the photos to destroy it, not keep it. Why else would they attack someone taking pictures of them? A bad hair day? I’m curious why he wasn’t charged with assault and battery too.

      True though robbery is unnecessary. Battery and assault sure but I’d wait to hear the whole story or some video footage which I’m sure is out there somewhere

      • PappaDee says:

        Absolutely! All of this is conjecture at this point. I’m just amazed that people immediately jump to racism without consideration of what was reported. Although I’m probably too gullible and tend to believe what is reported has a high level of truth. But I do agree he has talent and hope he hasn’t let anger/embarrassment get the better of him.

    I remember when I went to his concert he said that he wasn’t a gangster and he didn’t like starting shit. I guess he proved himself wrong. 🙂
