A$AP Rocky's recent Caribbean getaway with pregnant partner Rihanna has ended on a bit of a sour note.
 
Shortly after arriving at LAX Airport and exiting a private jet (must be nice) , the rapper was arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department with assistance from the Homeland Security Investigations team.

The pair were returning from a trip to Rihanna's native Barbados.

NBC News have reported that Rocky - real name Rakim Mayers - was detained in connection to a 2021 shooting.

The report says he had been "under investigation" for an incident that occurred in California in November last year. Police reports obtained by NBC News say that the shooting victim, who survived, told police that the rapper "shot at him three to four times and believed one of the bullets grazed his left hand."

The arrest marks the first public reporting of the shooting.

He was later booked into jail with bail set at US$550,000, and released less than three hours later after posting bond.

He now faces a court date in late August.
