A$AP Rocky has been sentenced to three days community service and a fine of $250 after pleading guilty to attempted grand larceny (basically attempted theft), reports TMZ. The charge relates to a fight he got into with two photographers in New York back in July.

As previously reported, the rapper, real name Rakim Mayers, was arrested after the scuffle, which left one of the photographers involved requiring hospital treatment. The attempted grand larceny charge is in relation to an alleged attempt by Mayers to take one of the photographers’ cameras. At the time he was also charged with attempted robbery and assault, though both of these were subsequently dropped.
