Rapper ASAP Rocky arrested in Stockholm after street brawl

Rapper ASAP Rocky arrested in Stockholm after street brawl

In another video shared to his account, one of the young men can be seen hitting A$AP Rocky's security guard with a pair of headphones.

Swedish police arrested A$AP Rocky late Tuesday night on suspicion of assault after a video emerged apparently showing the rapper throwing a man through the air.

No information about the relationship between the four people arrested has been released as yet.

His entourage repeatedly ask two men to leave them alone, while the men ask for a fight. At one point, Rocky directly addresses the camera, saying that he doesn't want any problems and that the men keep following him.

In the footage, Rocky and his team were approached by two young men on the street when an argument between the groups breaks out.

UNHCR with partners that include IOM has relocated more than 1,500 refugees from detention centres near combat to safer areas. Thousands are being held in government-run detention centres in what human rights groups say are often inhuman conditions.


A$AP Rocky explained the incident in the caption of the video. They then followed them and threatened to contact the police.

Right before hands were thrown a woman interjected and stated one of the two men following A$AP and the team were grabbing her in an inappropriate way.

A$AP Rocky is sharing his side of the story as well as supporting videos after news broke that he and some associates allegedly got into an altercation with an unidentified male in Stockholm, Sweden.

The prosecutor's office says the investigation is still in the initial stages and "no information about the evidence situation or investigation measures can now be given". Under Swedish law, Rocky and the others can be held for up to three days before appearing before a judge to face formal charges.
