Law enforcement sources inform us … cops selected to not give Rocky or his group a heads up. In truth, we’re informed the arrest was greater than every week within the making.
There’s a quite common process LAPD and different businesses make use of after they arrest a suspect … a voluntary give up. The cops would sometimes name the suspect’s lawyer or different rep and prepare for the suspect to show himself/herself in with out fanfare. That did not occur right here, and we’re informed Rocky and his group cannot perceive why … it is not like he would escape — and, by the best way, his girlfriend is within the third trimester of being pregnant.
Our legislation enforcement sources say the rationale they blindsided Rocky was as a result of they needed to see if they might discover the gun used within the taking pictures. As we reported, cops imagine A$AP shot a person in Hollywood throughout an argument again in November. The bullet grazed the sufferer’s hand. Cops needed to search out the gun and fearful in the event that they gave Rocky a heads up, he may 86 it. That’s why they coordinated the arrest and the search of his residence so each went down on the similar time.
We’re informed at the least 10 cops have been ready for Rocky when his non-public jet pulled as much as the terminal … and that is after they cuffed him and took him away. Rihanna and Rocky have been on their approach again from Barbados.
We’re additionally informed Rihanna needed to go by his place Wednesday morning and decide up a few of her stuff however cops would not let her in.
Rocky posted $550,000 bail Wednesday and was launched. The D.A. has the case, and will decide quickly on whether or not to file expenses.
