A$AP Rocky found guilty of assault in Sweden

Source: Politico

STOCKHOLM — A Swedish court has found American rapper A$AP Rocky guilty of assault for his role in a June 30 street brawl in Stockholm.

The artist, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, earlier pleaded self-defense and said he had tried to avoid a confrontation with two men who he said were persistently following his entourage.

One of them picked a fight with one of Mayers’ two bodyguards, the rapper told the Stockholm District Court.

The courts said the defendants “were not in a situation” where they were entitled to self-defense and that they “assaulted the victim by hitting and kicking him.”

4. He was allowed to leave jail, and the country, after the trial, but before the verdict

which may have indicated they already thought they weren't going to give him a prison term, rather than a conditional sentence.

11. Probably had to post bail.

The fines would likely come out of that. Plus hé could be banned from Sweden until hé serves his sentence.
