A$AP Rocky is on the receiving end of a lawsuit stemming from the July altercation in which he attacked two photographers. A man who says Rocky assaulted him claims the rapper was taking illegal drugs before the attack.

According to TMZ (via The Drop), the initial alleged victim, Shenick Alcine, says he encountered Rocky in a clothing store and saw the rapper getting high, though he didn’t specify what kind of drugs he witnessed Rocky using. Alcine claims Rocky then attacked him, which led two photographers to begin filming the incident.

When Rocky noticed the cameras, he left Alcine and began going after the photographers. The rapper was arrested and charged with assault and robbery, but he eventually received only a fine and community service after agreeing to plead guilty to a charge of grand larceny for attempting to take the cameras.

Rocky’s camp did not respond to TMZ’s requests for comment.

Hopefully A$AP Rocky can keep himself out of trouble, because his debut, ‘Long.Live.A$AP,’ reaches retailers on Jan. 15, 2013 and he hits the road to tour with Rihanna in the spring. He told NME that his new year’s resolution is “to put out the best f—ing record ever. I think I’ve done that, so maybe I need another one.”
