STOCKHOLM, Sweden — American hip-hop artist A$AP Rocky has been charged with assault following his ongoing legal battle with Swedish Prosecutors — following an incident that took place on June 30 in Stockholm.
Swedish prosecutor Daniel Suneson filed the charges against the rapper, who has remained in custody since his July 3 arrest, and two others on “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.”
“It is worth noting that I have had access to a greater amount of material than that which has previously been available on the internet,” he told the press. “In addition to video material, the injured party’s statements have been supported by witness statements.”
Originally, two parties in the case claimed injury from the assault. However, one of the claims were tossed out due to “insufficient supporting evidence.”
Rocky’s bodyguard, who allegedly suffered a head wound in the altercation, filed a counter-allegation against one of the alleged victims which also closed this week.
He was released without facing charges.
The three suspects will remain in custody until Stockholm District Court announces its trial date — next week, Tuesday.
