ASAP Rocky has been found guilty of assault in Stockholm. The rapper spend the past month in a Swedish jail after being involved in a street brawl with a 19-year-old who was seen of video harassing Rocky and his crew while they walked the streets of the country. Rocky, 30, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, said during the trial that he had acted in self-defense when he threw the man, Mustafa Jafari, to the ground, and then, along with two members of his entourage, punched and kicked him.
Swedish prosectors wanted him to serve a 6-month prison sentence, but a panel of four judges found that the assault was not of such a “serious nature that a prison sentence must be chosen.”
Rocky and his two crew members were ordered to pay Mr. Jafari damages.
