A$AP Rocky Has Been Charged With Aggravated Assault, Will Face Trial In Sweden
by Staff Editor
What started as a viral video has ballooned into an international incident.
ASAP Rocky has been charged with assault in connection with a fight in Stockholm, Sweden last month after headlining a festival in the country.
Swedish prosecutor Daniel Suneson said he filed charges against the rapper and two others “having come to the conclusion that the events in question constitute a crime and despite claims of self-defence and provocation”.
The case has drawn the attention of fellow recording artists, the Congressional Black Caucus and even President Donald Trump. Rocky has been in police custody since July 3rd.
