ASAP Rocky found guilty of assault during Stockholm brawl and given suspended sentence

The 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, and two members of his entourage were in Stockholm for a concert when they got embroiled in a row with the victim, a 19-year-old man.

They “assaulted the victim by hitting and kicking him as he lay on the ground. The artist also threw the victim to the ground and stepped on his arm,” the court wrote in a statement.

It rejected the defendants’ claim that they had acted in self-defence, saying they had not been in situation where they were subject to an ongoing or imminent criminal attack.
