A$AP Rocky arrested for suspected assault in Sweden
It was recently reported by TMZ that A$AP Rocky and his crew got into a brawl on the street in Stockholm, and TMZ posted video of the incident. (Rocky also posted a video on Instagram of the lead-up to the incident, captioned “SO A FEW DRUG ADDICTS ARE NOT MY FANS , WE DONT KNOW THESE GUYS AND WE DIDNT WANT TROUBLE , THEY FOLLOWED US FOR 4 BLOCKS , AND THEY WERE SLAPPING GIRLS BUTTS WHO PASSED , GIVE ME A BREAK.”)
Rocky and three other people have now been arrested for suspected assault, as CBS News reports:
American rapper A$AP Rocky has been arrested for suspected assault in Sweden along with three other people over an incident that occurred on Sunday, Swedish officials have confirmed to CBS News. A Swedish Prosecution Office spokesman said the artist was arrested for suspected “gross assault,” but would not provide any further details.
[…] A statement provided by the prosecutor’s office on Wednesday said only that the investigation was still in “an initial stage” and thus no information about any evidence would be given.
Under Swedish law, he and the other suspects can be held for up to three days before they have to appear before a judge to face formal charges, but it might not take that long.
