‘I’m innocent’: Rapper A$AP Rocky arrested over ‘fight’

Rapper A$AP Rocky has been arrested on suspicion of assault in Sweden following an alleged fight.

The hip hop star, 30, posted a video about the incident on his Instagram account, saying two men were following him and his team through Stockholm on Sunday.

“Hits security in face with headphones then follows us,” he wrote next to the clip, followed by the caption: “I’m innocent.”

He had played the Smash festival there before his arrest, which comes just days before he is due to headline the Wireless music festival in London this weekend.

A spokeswoman for the Swedish Prosecution Authority said: “I can confirm that he is arrested, suspected of gross assault after an incident in Stockholm on Sunday.

“Two other persons are also arrested for gross assault.”

A video published by US showbiz website TMZ appears to show A$AP Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, throwing a punch at another man in the street.
