A$AP Rocky Found Guilty of Assault in Sweden

A$AP Rocky was found guilty by a judge in Sweden on Wednesday for his role in an assault before his appearance at a music festival. The court said that the assault was not “of such a serious nature” and did not sentence the rapper to any jail time.

The 30-year-old rapper left Stockholm, Sweden, earlier this month and arrived in the U.S. after being detained in the country since July 3. The rapper was accused of beating 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari on June 30 outside a fast-food restaurant in central Stockholm. He pleaded not guilty at the start of the three-day trial, saying that he acted in self-defense when Jafari and another man would not leave him and friends alone.

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.”
