Rapper A$AP Rocky charged with slapping Philly fan

PHILADELPHIA - September 5, 2013

The district attorney's office says a concertgoer claims the 24-year-old Harlem-bred rapper, whose given name is Rakim Mayers, slapped her as he walked through the crowd of dancing fans Saturday and was trying to wave some of them away. The name of the woman who filed the criminal complaint wasn't released.

The complaint states the rapper landed an open-palm slap square on the woman's face, giving her whiplash.

A message left at the artist's publicity agency was not immediately returned Thursday.
