Video Footage Surfaces Of A$AP Rocky's Bodyguard Allegedly Attacking Victim In Assault Case
A new video has surfaced, which shows A$AP Rocky's bodyguard allegedly attacking the alleged victim in relation to the rapper's current assault case. In the surveillance video, obtained by TMZ, the security guard appears to grab Mustafa Jafari by his throat, lift him off the ground and carry him down the street.
The footage was reportedly captured before the fight took place and before Jafari tried to punch the bodyguard and hit him with his headphones. As previously reported, the alleged victim claims that he was acting in self-defense. He was not charged for punching the bodyguard. The security guard was not charged either, despite the video evidence.
Rocky pleaded not guilty to the assault charge earlier this week.
His lawyer said that the rapper was acting in "self-defense" after being followed and harassed by two men, including Jafari.
