Sweden has proven itself to be Troll Master Queen of the Baltics. After keeping A$AP Rocky in jail for a month over a possible assault charge, Sweden finally charged him and put him through a trial. Once the trial ended, the court released him and his co-defendants and they went back to America as a verdict was decided. That verdict came in today, and A$AP and company have been found guilty of assault in Sweden. They won’t do jail time, though, but Sweden has hit them with fines. Hey, A$AP, maybe Donald Trump will pay your tab for you?
A$AP and his crew got in trouble after a fight in Stockholm where a guy was bothering him and his crew and even attacked his bodyguard. While the main agitator and the bodyguard were not charged, A$AP and his friends (who jumped the guy for not leaving them alone) got the shit end of the stick and faced potential legal consequences. Prosecutors seemed out for blood and Trump shoved his nose into the situation, which seemed to piss them off more.
TMZ says that four judges found him guilty, but they aren’t going to call him back to jail and trigger an international incident between the Swedish government and President Celebrity Apprentice. Instead, they sentenced him to time-served in that luxurious Swedish jail. A$AP and his co-defendants have been ordered to pay restitution to the victim as well as cover Sweden’s court expenses. But Trump did offer to pay A$AP’s bail, so surely he’ll just dip into the American tax dollars account for his new black friend also. It’s election season! Always good to have more than one black friend!
The judges didn’t buy A$AP’s self-defense excuse since at one point the guy who was harassing them was on the floor and they were wailing on him. But the judges found that the prosecution couldn’t prove that A$AP took it too far by using a bottle to attack the guy.
So there you have it, Sweden got theirs in the form of American dollars and America will probably pat itself on the back for their hard work of… you tell me. So guys, the next time a famous rich person gets “in trouble” somewhere, can we wait to threaten to blow up embassies until after they get found guilty?
