The man who attacked A$AP Rocky’s crew will NOT be prosecuted for any crime — even though there is video of him harassing the rapper and inciting violence before A$AP popped off.

via TMZ:

Swedish prosecutors just said they believe the guy who harassed Rocky attacked his bodyguard in self-defense, after being pushed and lifted by his neck. The initial video does not show anyone getting physical with the guy, but prosecutors have drawn that conclusion.

To the contrary, you hear Rocky in the first video trying to diffuse the situation, saying no one wants to go to jail.

Nevertheless, prosecutors say the guy was acting in self-defense when he hurled his headphones at Rocky’s bodyguard, cutting his head.

Here’s the bizarre part … the bodyguard has already been CLEARED by Swedish authorities. So, on the one hand the bodyguard acted appropriately, and on the other he incited the violence and caused the other guy to act in self-defense. In other words, it doesn’t make sense.

The man was never taken into custody during the investigation, despite the fact that Rocky was arrested a day after the incident and remains in jail 2 1/2 weeks later, and no charges have been filed.

It’s clear Rocky will be charged with aggravated assault … prosecutors mistakenly said as much last week. If convicted, he faces 6 years in Swedish prison.

The Swedish justice system is apparently an immovable force, because the Prime Minister has essentially told President Trump and the State Dept. to butt out after their attempts to free the rapper.

Formal charges are expected Thursday. Up to now, prosecutors and the judge have justified the detention by saying Rocky is a flight risk. It would seem he will continue to be held after Thursday, since authorities will be upping the ante.

This is actually quite maddening. There is clear video of the attacker harassing A$AP long before anything physical occured.
