A few weeks later, Rock was detained after they got into an altercation in Arizona and, in a second incident, Blueface is alleged to have punched Rock’s father at a bar in Los Angeles. In the month of November 2021, an arrest warrant was issued to Blueface along with two other males following an altercation with a bouncer at an area nightclub in San Fernando Valley.
