For the past few weeks, A$AP Rocky’s supporters have been following his situation in Sweden hoping that the investigation on the rapper is dropped. Unfortunately, Rocky has been officially been charged with assault by local prosecutors in connection to his role in a street fight in Stockholm, and could be facing 2 years!
Prosecutor Daniel Suneson’s official statement was:
“I have today commenced criminal proceedings against the three individuals 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-defence and provocation.”
Defense attorney Slobodan Jovicic said, “Rocky feels that he acted in self-defense, he is claiming that he is innocent, and in that perspective he of course is very sad.”
