A$AP Rocky Arrested In Sweden For Suspicion Of Assault After Alleged Incident Caught On Video

#Roommates, #ASAPRocky has been arrested in Sweden for suspected assault, @cbsnews reports.

 

Just a few days ago, video of an alleged altercation between ASAP Rocky’s crew and a man surfaced. Now, they are all being held in #Stockholm for suspected “gross assault”, a Swedish Prosecution Office spokesman said.

 

Following the video of the incident, ASAP Rocky takes to Instagram proclaiming his innocence. He also posts another video captioned “HITS SECURITY IN FACE WITH HEADPHONES THEN FOLLOWS US”. In the video you can see the man approach ASAP’s crew as they tell him to leave them alone.

 

Although it is not clear what happened before or after these videos, the footage does show a physical altercation occurring between the men. Footage shows what appears to be punches thrown, and one man ends up on the ground.

 

“So a few drug addicts are not my fans,” he said on his Instagram account. “We don’t know these guys and we didn’t want trouble, they followed us for 4 blocks, and they were slapping girls butts who passed, give me a break.”

 

Although not seen in the video, a female can be heard from in the background claiming the men slapped her and her girlfriend on the behind.

 

The prosecutor’s office reportedly provided a statement on Wednesday, saying the investigation is still in an “initial stage”, meaning no information about evidence could be given.

 

According to CBS News, Swedish law states that he and the other suspects can be held for up to three days before they have to appear before a judge to face formal charges.

 

As we previously reported, the video, initially released online a few days ago, shows ASAP Rocky and his crew physically beating the man.

 

Due to his arrest, A$AP will miss three festivals he is slated to perform at in Sweden.
