A new report has confirmed that American rapper, A$AP Rocky, has been charged with assault.
This is coming after the rapper was arrested over a confrontation in Stockholm in June.
The rapper born Rakim Mayers, 30, has been held in custody since July 3, and according to his lawyer, Slobodan Jovicic, Asap maintain that he was merely defending himself after being assaulted and that his client is innocent.
Via a statement, Swedish public prosecutor Daniel Suneson said that two others have also been charged for their involvement in the issue and that all will remain in custody until the trial.
“It is worth noting that I have had access to a greater amount of material than that which has previously been available on the internet. In addition to video material, the injured party’s statements have been supported by witness statements,” Suneson said.
Video clips of the brawl which surfaced online showed the rapper and his companions repeatedly ask two men to stop following them. He later went on to write that one of the men hit a member of his security “in the face with headphones,”
However, another video posted by TMZ, showed A$AP Rocky grab one of the men and throw him to the ground.
