A$AP Rocky (real name Rakim Mayers) has been charged with assault in Los Angeles, less than a week after former A$AP Mob member A$AP Relli (real name Terell Ephron) claimed he was shot by the rapper last November.The news was confirmed by a statement from Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, who on August 15 said that his office had filed charges against Mayers for two counts of assault with a semi-automatic firearm with allegations of personally using a firearm.“Discharging a gun in a public place is a serious offense that could have ended with tragic consequences,” Gascón said, “not only for the person targeted but also for innocent bystanders visiting Hollywood.

My office conducted a thorough review of the evidence in this case and determined that the addition of a special firearm allegation was warranted.”The alleged shooting itself went unreported, however back in April, Mayers was arrested for the incident after being detained at Los Angeles International Airport.

It was claimed at the time that he’d been under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), with the shooting said to have happened near Vista Del Mar and Selma Ave around 10:20pm on November 6.As noted in the statement from Gascón, that investigation is still underway via the LAPD’s Robbery/Homicide Division.
