UPDATE: As reported by TMZ, Swedish authorities are asking the judge to allow them to detain A$AP Rocky for at least two weeks to continue the investigation on what happened in Stockholm. A$AP's bodyguard has already been released, it seems that police is clearly gunning for Rocky, who could face a 6-year sentence. 


The news has been circulating for a few hours: A$AP Rocky was arrested in the night between Tuesday and Wednesday in Sweden on charges of having attacked a person in Stockholm on Sunday night where the rapper was to perform at the Smash Festival. Unfortunately, it wasn't the show that attracted the attention, but a dramatic event that happened just before in the centre of the Scandinavian city. A video released by the well-known American scandal website TMZ shows what happened. In the images, you see the star with his bodyguard involved in a brawl with two guys. The situation degenerates and from the frames, it seems that Rocky and his crew hit the two with fists and kicks while they were still lying on the ground. According to the rumours, the artist spontaneously went to the police on Tuesday night and was immediately detained. 

After TMZ's video started circulating online, A$AP Rocky himself published on his Instagram profile two videos showing what had happened before the attack: two guys stalking the rapper and his bodyguard with insistence, accusing them of breaking their headphones and threatening to call the police if they weren't compensated. At a certain point, a woman comes in, intervening in the discussion and accusing the young people of groping. Soon after, Rocky starts the fight. 

TMZ writes that A$AP Rocky will remain in prison for 3 days until the local authorities decide whether to indict him: in this case, he could risk up to 6 years in prison.
