TMZ broke the news on Wednesday evening that A$AP Rocky was released from jail shortly after his arrest.
He posted $550,000 bail and was able to walk out of police headquarters a free man.
The rapper was flanked by officers as he exited the jail.
Rihanna’s beau was arrested after returning back to the United States following a pre-baby trip to Barbados with the star.
The pair flew on a private jet and the rapper was met by officers who handcuffed him immediately.
According to TMZ, he was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, which is said to be a gun.
The arrest is related to a November 6, 2021 incident, per the outlet’s reporting.
The alleged victim claims A$AP Rocky shot at him several times, with at least one bullet grazing his hand.
The drama isn’t over, however.
In addition to being booked at the airport, A$AP Rocky’s home was searched by police.
A warrant for the home was granted on Wednesday, TMZ reported.
Authorities used a battering ram to pass through the front gate on the property.
Police completed their search, leaving the home with a box of potential evidence as noted by the outlet.
