The incident allegedly occurred on November 6 in Hollywood, where Ephron claims Rocky arranged up a meeting and started a verbal altercation that resulted in gunfire, according to the lawsuit acquired by a media source.

Recall that  A$AP was detained by police at LAX in April as they waited for him to disembark from his private flight from Barbados before escorting him in handcuffs.

Rocky was detained for a dangerous weapon assault. The police said it was related to the incident on November 6, during which the accused victim claimed Rocky fired several shots at him, at least one of which glanced off his palm. Rocky knew the suspected victim, according to the police.

The A$AP Mob and Relli have a history of animosity. Relli allegedly ratted on Rocky, according to A$AP Bari, which resulted in the arrest.
