A$AP Rocky Officially Charged With Assault In Sweden; Donald Trump Reacts
Despite efforts from many, A$AP Rocky‘s legal woes have just gone from bad to worse. Because he’s officially been charged with aggravated assault.
Full story below…
The rapper will remain in the Swedish prison he’s been sat in for the last few weeks after a physical altercation he and two friends had with a group they argue were harassing them.
Since their arrest, the trio have insisted they were acting in self-defence. But Swedish prosecutors now say they have additional evidence (such as eye witness accounts) that suggest otherwise.
Daniel Suneson, from the City Public Prosecution Office, said in a statement:
“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-defense and provocation.”
As at stands, A$AP – who prosecutors are billing a flight risk – faces six years in prison.
US President Donald Trump has however expressed his disappointment at the Swedish Prime Minister for not being able to act on A$AP’s case.
