A$AP Rocky Slapped With Assault Charges Over Sweden Street Fight

Three weeks since the ‘Fashion Killa’ rapper was arrested, prosecutor Daniel Suneson claims that the June incident constitutes a crime despite claims of self-defence and provocation.

AceShowbizA$AP Rocky has been charged with assault over a fight in Sweden on June 30.

The “Fashion Killa” hitmaker has been behind bars for three weeks as Stockholm authorities investigated a street scuffle he was involved in.

Investigations against a man the star accused of harassing him were dropped on Monday, July 22, and on Thursday prosecutor Daniel Suneson said in a statement he has filed charges against the artist and two others, “having come to the conclusion that the events in question constitute a crime and despite claims of self-defence and provocation.”

Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, was arrested on July 2, and was being held at the Kronoberg Detention Centre alongside two associates as they waited for a decision to be made on an indictment.

The 30-year-old’s lawyer has alleged Rocky is being kept in appalling conditions, with U.S. President Donald Trump and stars including Kim Kardashian and Kanye West working for the rapper’s release.

The three suspects will remain in custody until trial. The Stockholm District Court is yet to set a date for the proceedings.
