A$AP Rocky is still in jail and it looks as if this could be his permanent home for the next two years if things don’t go his way.
After being placed in a Swedish jail for a street fight that broke out between A$AP Rocky, his crew, and some locals, Swedish authorities are charging the American rapper with criminal assault– despite help from the White House. A$ap Rocky criminal assault is alarming at the fact
The altercation took place last month in Stockholm, while Rocky was allegedly in the city on tour.
Rocky and his crew left at least one victim injured. Photos gathered by TMZ show the one victim with a bloody arm, a bloody finger, blood on the back of an arm, a streak of blood on a bicep, and a gash on another body part and multiple cuts.
Throughout the ordeal, Rocky and his team insist that they were provoked– and there’s video to prove it. However, prosecutors are not taking the evidence as proof.
Because of that, many people, including A$AP’s mother, are saying that that they are treating the rapper unfairly because he’s black. But prosecutor Daniel Suneson say’s it’s a matter of wrong versus right.
Suneson claims that Rocky is “suspected of assault causing actual bodily harm, having come to the conclusion that the events in question constitute a crime and despite claims of self-defense and provocation.”
“It is worth noting that I have had access to a greater amount of material than that which has previously been available on the internet,” he said. “In addition to video material, the injured party’s statements have been supported by witness statements.”
The rapper is being held, along with two members of his entourage. If convicted they could face up to 2 years behind bars.
They will remain in custody until trial, which could begin next Tuesday.
