A$AP Rocky has been in jail in Stockholm, Sweden for three weeks now after a fight involving attacking a man who followed him and his security for almost a mile. The man hit the security with headphones and A$AP decided to retaliate for things getting physical. A$AP was soon arrested on an assault charge that could get him six years in convicted. Now, it looks like he’s staying in jail longer.
According to the Associated Press, Swedish prosecutor Daniel Suneson has just officially charged A$AP with assault. Two other men had charges filed against them as well. His explanation was “having come to the conclusion that the events in question constitute a crime and despite claims of self-defense and provocation.”
Rocky and the other two suspects will remain in custody until their trial dates. The Stockholm District Court still has to plan the dates. The man who attacked A$AP and his security didn’t get any charges because prosecutors see him reacting as self defense even though footage says otherwise.
This is a huge injustice towards A$AP. He will also lose close to $2 million in show money during his incarceration. If he’s found not guilty though, the Swedish government may owe him millions of dollars.
