Rocky’s lawyer insists that his client did not commit any crimes, acting in self-defense when he threw the man to the ground. His opposition says that by kicking him while he was down and by allegedly attacking him with a glass bottle, assault is the correct term. The two members of Rocky’s entourage who were also arrested, Bladimir Corniel and David Rispers, also deny that they have done anything wrong.
A$AP’s mother, Renee Black, was present in court during her son’s not guilty plea where she reportedly sat calmly as the charges were detailed.
