A$AP Rocky Arrested in Sweden!

A$AP Rocky Arrested in Sweden!

The rapper has been held by authorities in Sweden since July 2 after a physical altercation with two men in the streets of Stockholm.

A$AP Rocky‘s manager John Ehmann has revealed on social media that the hip-hop artist could be detained in a Swedish prison for another two-four weeks, causing him to miss seven festival appearances throughout Europe.

After Rocky got into an altercation with two Swedish residents on June 30, according to Ehmman, the artist and two members of his entourage voluntarily submitted themselves to questioning from Swedish authorities following his performance at Stockholm’s Splash festival on July 2 and were then arrested.

On Monday, we filed an appeal with the Swedish Supreme Court to have Rocky released from the inhumane conditions and the clear violation of human rights,” Ehmann said on Instagram. “They rejected the filing, which means Rocky will remain in prison for two weeks. The prosecutor on the case has further communicated that he is working to receive an additional two week extension for a trial to begin in mid – to end of August.

Rocky has already been forced to miss festival appearances at Kadetten Festival in Norway, Opener Festival in Poland, Longitude Festival in Ireland and Wireless Festival in London. If he continues to be held by Swedish authorities, Rocky will be a no-show at Splash Festival in Germany, Atlas Weekend Festival in Ukraine, Dour Festival in Belgium, Carroponte in Italy, Sonar in Spain, Melt Festival in Germany and Tomorrowland in Belgium.

Ehmann also commented on Rocky’s fight in Sweden, saying the artist acted in self defense after the two alleged victims followed and harassed the rapper and his crew.
