American rapper ASAP Rocky was found guilty of assault in absentia after he was arrested for what many onlookers thought was self-defence: an altercation in which two Swedish immigrants attacked him and his crew.
According to TMZ, on Wednesday four of the judges in the case issued their ruling, which included finding ASAP Rocky guilty of assaulting a man during a street fight while he was out in Stockholm. The judges said that ASAP along with his two friends who were also standing trial “were not in a situation where they were entitled to self-defence.”
The remainder of the case depended on whether ASAP threw a bottle at the victim during the fight, which took place back in June. Prosecutors claimed that ASAP threw the bottle at the guy and caused him to get badly cut. However, they were unable to find a witness who saw the bottle being thrown.
