A$AP Rocky Charged with Assault in Sweden


A$AP Rocky has been charged with committing “assault causing actual body harm,” by a Swedish prosecutor who rejects the rapper’s claim that he acted in self-defense during an altercation in Stockholm last month. No trial date has been announced, but the rapper will remain in custody until then, and the New York Times reports that he could receive “a fine based on his daily earnings or a maximum two years in prison.” A$AP Rocky and two associates have already been detained for three weeks during the investigation leading up to the charges despite protests by other American celebrities and the intervention of Donald Trump.

On June 30, A$AP Rocky was in Stockholm to perform at a music festival when he and his entourage encountered Mustafa Jafari, who is reportedly 19 years old and from Afghanistan. (Jafari’s lawyer would not confirm his nationality but told the Times his client is an immigrant and “had no previous knowledge of A$AP Rocky before this incident.”) A$AP Rocky shared video clips on Instagram in which his team repeatedly tell Jafari and another man to stop following them and one of them throws his headphones. – Source
