Following altercation with fan...
A$AP Rocky

A$AP Rocky has been charged with assault following an altercation with a fan.

A$AP Rocky has always been a loose cannon. The rapper's shows have a rare energy, which - sadly - can sometimes boil over.

Performing at Jay-Z's Made In America festival in Philadelphia on Saturday (August 31st) the MC waded into the crowd.

According to TMZ, A$AP Rocky then allegedly turned and slapped a fan in the face. (via Pitchfork) The incident apparently led to the fan suffering whiplash, and - as a result - she has decided to file a complaint against the rapper.

The D.A. reviewed the case and opted to press charges of misdemeanor simple assault against A$AP Rocky. The case will be heard later this year.

A$AP Rocky spoke to Clash for an exclusive cover story last year - check out the interview HERE.
