A$AP Rocky charged with assault

Rapper A$AP Rocky has been charged with assault with a firearm in connection with a shooting in Hollywood last year.

The artiste whose real name is Rakim Mayers, allegedly pointed the gun at a former friend during an argument in November.

Prosecutors say he later fired the weapon in the direction of the victim twice, resulting in a minor injury.

The victim, identified as Terell Ephron, who is part of the A$AP Mob hip-hop collective, is seeking at least $25,000 in damages.

Rocky, who recently welcomed a baby with singer Rihanna, is due to appear in court tomorrow.

If found guilty, the 33-year-old faces up to nine years in prison.
