A$AP Rocky was arrested in New York last night for allegedly beating up two photographers. The rapper, real name Rakim Mayers, was in a verbal dispute with an unidentified party when two passersby started taking photos of the argument. A$AP and a friend quickly turned their ire on the photographers, one of which landed in the hospital with cuts and bruises. TMZ is reporting that the rapper has been booked for attempted robbery, though what he allegedly stole—the cameras, maybe?—is unknown.
A$AP Rocky was just in Chicago last weekend for the Pitchfork Music Festival. He’s supposed to appear on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight with the rest of the A$AP Mob, but whether he’ll be released from jail before then is still unclear.
