A$AP Rocky arrested after fight in NYC | Music News

A$AP Rocky is developing quite the reputation for bad behaviour. After making headlines earlier this year for brawling at SXSW and later at a show in London, the Harlem-born rapper has been arrested in New York City over another physical altercation.

According to Karen Civil, Rocky was seen getting into a verbal dispute with one NY citizen, and after two photographers ran to the scene to capture shots, the rapper and another individual turned their attention to the photographers, and a full-fledged fight broke out. Both cameramen suffered cuts and bruises, and one was taken to hospital.

Currently in NYPD custody, Rocky is being charged with robbery, although it is unclear what he is being accused of stealing. Stay tuned to SoulCulture for more details as they become available.

The two images below surfaced online shortly after the incident, and show Rocky in cuffs at the scene.
