A$AP Rocky Dodges Assault Charges For Allegedly Slapping Female Fan

Written by Greg Moskovitch on October 17, 2013

Rapper A$AP Rocky has managed to avoid charges for misdemeanour assault that date back to an incident in Philadelphia at the Made In America festival, in which the artist allegedly slapped a female fan across the face, with the woman subsequently filing a criminal complaint.

TMZ reported at the time that the woman filed a complaint with the District Attorney’s Office claiming she suffered whiplash as a result of the incident. As evidence implicating the rapper was scant and it was a misdemeanour offence, the woman could only file a private criminal complaint with the DA.

Now TMZ reports that the issued charge of misdemeanour simple assault has come to halt as a result of the conditions of a private criminal complaint, which state that the victim must provide the DA with contact information for the alleged assailant.

As per the woman’s request, the paperwork was sent to Rocky’s record company via certified mail, but the rapper was not there to sign for it, the documents subsequently returned to the sender. The DA’s office now cannot move forward until provided with a viable address.

The incident mirrors another that occurred back in July during one of the rapper’s Sydney performances, in which the rapper was alleged to have slapped another female fan across the face when she tapped Rocky on the head and gestured for a kiss.
