ASAP Rocky: Swedish jail requests more time to investigate assault

ASAP Rocky: Swedish jail requests more time to investigate assault

A$AP and his crew did indeed attack a man on the streets July 1, but only after the man harassed and physically attacked A$AP and a bodyguard and allegedly grabbed a woman's butt.

A$AP Rocky's detention in a Swedish jail continues as local authorities proceed with their assault investigation and an outcry calling for his release spreads across the globe.

Kim Kardashian West contacted the White House out of concern for ASAP Rocky, who is imprisoned in Stockholm over his alleged participation in a brawl, according to The Washington Post - and Trump was reportedly sympathetic to his plight.

Kardashian West, who is working to become a lawyer and helped free 17 inmates in 90 days this spring, told CNN's Van Jones in April that she was unconcerned by potential controversy over her working with the White House due to the gravity of prison reform.

Even though the president's subordinates were making an effort to free A$AP Rocky, the Congressional Black Caucus appeared unpleased with the work of Trump's administration thus far.

Ebola spreads among humans through close contact with blood, body fluids, secretions or organs of an infected person. As many as 3,000 health workers in Goma have received an Ebola vaccine, Ghebreyesus confirmed.

Surprisingly, sources say the president does believe Rocky has been treated unfairly and is offering his assistance to get him released. A State Dept. member was supposed to arrive in Sweden on Thursday.

Though he has yet to be officially charged with a crime, A$AP Rocky has been incarcerated in a Swedish jail cell since the beginning of July.

Multiple celebrities and U.S. Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., have pushed for Rocky's release.

Kim reportedly called Trump's senior advisor, Jared Kushner, who then spoke to his father-in-law Trump about Rocky's situation in Sweden.
