Trial against A$AP Rocky to go ahead

A Los Angeles judge ruled on Monday that there is enough evidence in an assault case against rapper A$AP Rocky to move forward to trial.

Superior Court Judge M.L. Villar ruled after about a day and half of testimony that the “the totality of the video and testimony shows there is sufficient evidence for the defendant to go to trial”, KCAL reported.

A$AP Rocky, whose given name is Rakim Mayers, was charged with two counts of assault with a firearm last year after prosecutors alleged he pointed a semiautomatic handgun at a former friend during a heated discussion and fired his gun twice in the direction of his that same friend in another confrontation in 2021.

He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

His next court appearance is scheduled for January 8, according to prosecutors. (CNN)
