A$AP Rocky was supposed to be headlining VestiVille (along with Cardi B and way down at the bottom in fine print Ja Rule), a music festival in Belgium last week. However, due to infrastructure and security concerns, the festival was cancelled and people are saying it’s Fyre Fest all over again. So I guess Rocky had some time to kill in Europe and headed to Sweden where TMZ reports he and 3 others were arrested for their participation in a street fight. I guess these are the dangers of associating with riff raff. Rocky should have left those Jenners alone.
It’s actually a pretty fucked up situation. The police can hold him for up to 3 days and he could face up to 6 years in Swedish prison. And there is video evidence showing that Rocky and his crew were legitimately minding their own business before the shit went down. According to TMZ:
A$AP Rocky is under arrest in Sweden for a street fight and now faces a very serious charge — this despite video that seems to show he and his team were NOT the aggressors.
Law enforcement in Stockholm tell us … cops busted A$AP on suspicion of aggravated assault. TMZ broke the story … the rapper and his team got into the brawl last weekend.
Witnesses told us the fight started because the man was hounding A$AP and his team over a pair of headphones he claimed they had broken.
Since we are now all our own Big Brother, the incident was caught on video. Rocky can be seen throwing a man like a rag doll as he and members of his entourage punch and kick the alleged victim.
It looks bad. That is until you see the video Rocky provided which shows the lead-up to the incident in which the alleged victim and his friend followed, harassed, and at one point charged at Rocky’s security guard, breaking those headphones he was wearing in the process. Some female witnesses also reported the pair had been going around grabbing women’s asses.
However, AR later posted a nearly 3-minute long video which showed the man had actually broken his headphones when he smashed them on the head of A$AP’s bodyguard. Even after that clear first shot was taken … Rocky is seen on camera playing peacemaker, trying to calm the situation.
I have to believe the Swedish police will take all the evidence into consideration before throwing Rocky into the slammer for 6 years. TMZ says that “3 other people were also arrested … 2 on suspicion of aggravated assault, and 1 for suspicion of assault“. I wonder if Rocky’s wishing he had just stayed in mellow Belgium for some delicious waffles and a beer. Err, maybe not.
