A$AP Rocky has been slapped with a lawsuit by a New York man who claims he was assaulted by the rapper in a clothing store back in July.

According to TMZ, Shenick Alcine, the alleged victim, claims he witnessed Rocky doing illegal drugs in the clothing store before the ‘Long.Live.A$AP’ creator violently attacked him. Alcine was the guy tussling with Rocky when two amateur photographers started filming their altercation on the street. When Rocky saw the camera crew, he redirected his fisticuffs on them.

In the assault case against the photogs, Rocky received a sentence of three days of community service and a $250 fine in exchange for pleading guilty to grand larceny. As a result, the assault and robbery charges were also dropped.

Attorneys for Rocky had no comment on Alcine’s lawsuit.

Hopefully in 2013, A$AP Rocky will stay litigation free as he gets ready to drop his debut album ‘Long.Live.A$AP’ on Jan. 15. In addition, the Harlem rapper will join Rihanna on her Diamond World Tour in March.
