A$AP Rocky apparently doesn’t like to have his picture taken. According to TMZ, the rapper was taken into police custody on Thursday night (July 19) in New York after attacking two men who were snapping photos of him on the street.

The 23-year-old was in downtown Manhattan when he got into a verbal dispute with someone. When two male bystanders saw the spat going down, they decided to play paparazzi and start taking photos of the heated exchange.

A$AP then turned his attention to the nosy bystanders and allegedly left them with cuts and bruises, and landed one of the victims in the hospital.

Complex has shared photos of the rapper being apprehended by four police officers, along with another man, who seems to have lost his shirt. Despite the brawl, A$AP was reportedly arrested on suspicion of attempted robbery.
