But in court on Friday, the prosecution said ASAP Rocky and his companions had “every possibility” to leave the scene and that they were not in a position where they needed to use “self-defence”.
During his summing up, prosecutor Daniel Suneson told the Stockholm District Court the rapper should be jailed for about six months.
ASAP Rocky’s defence lawyer, Slobodan Jovicic, argued the incident was not a pre-meditated group assault and the rapper should be set free.
