Published Jul 03, 2019A$AP Rocky was reportedly arrested late last night on suspicion of assaulting a man in Stockholm.
The reported arrest came as a result of a video obtained by Swedish police showing the American rapper getting into a heated and physical altercation with a young man, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The video of the alleged incident was taken to police on Sunday (June 30), showing Rocky grabbing a man and then throwing him several feet into the air.
TMZ added that two young men claimed Rocky broke a pair of their headphones, leading them to follow the rapper and threaten to call police.
