Asap Rocky fight

A video has emerged of the rapper getting in a fight in Sweden.

Days before Longitude festival is supposed to kick off, one of the headliners has been arrested following a fight in Sweden.

Swedish police arrested A$AP Rocky late Tuesday night on suspicion of assault after a video emerged apparently showing the rapper throwing a man through the air.

The rapper shared a number of videos on his Instagram page of what led to the fight, where you can see his entourage asking two men to leave them alone, while the two men ask them for a fight.

A girl then accuses the two men following Rocky of sexually harassing them.

Rocky’s security guard continues to ask the two men to turn around, but they ignore his request.

Ultimately, a fight broke out, and the rapper has since been arrested, according to Swedish media.

No comment has been made regarding whether he will still perform at Longitude.

Chance the Rapper has already pulled out of the festival, with Stormzy filling in as his replacement.
