ASAP Rocky’s bail has been set at $500,000.
Rocky was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon at Los Angeles International Airport on Wednesday morning.
An LAPD press release alleges an argument took place between Rocky and the victim near Vista Del Mar and Selma Avenue.
“The argument escalated and resulted in the suspect firing a handgun at the victim,” the statement reads. “The victim sustained a minor injury from the incident and later sought his medical treatment. Following the shooting, the suspect and two additional males fled the area on foot. Detectives worked diligently to investigate and corroborate the reporting information, which helped identify the suspect(s) involved.”
