A$AP Rocky Arrives in the U.S. After Release from Swedish Prison
TMZ reported that he landed in Los Angeles on Saturday morning (August 3) and that he walked out of the plane with a smile on his face. This moment ends A$AP Rocky's almost one-month stint in a Swedish prison.
He was arrested in Sweden on July 2 following an alleged altercation with 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari on June 30. He's been detained in the country since the arrest. While prosecutors were pushing for a six-month prison sentence on assault charges, two eyewitnesses said that they didn't see the Harlem rapper with a weapon.
And since thejudge did not see A$AP Rocky and his co-defendants Thoto and Bladi, as flights risks, they were released and allowed to come back to America.
Before landing in LAX, he posted some gratitude on Instagram.
"THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART TO ALL OF MY FANS, FRIENDS AND ANYONE ACROSS THE GLOBE WHO SUPPORTED ME DURING THESE LAST FEW WEEKS I CANT BEGIN TO DESCRIBE HOW GRATEFUL I AM FOR ALL OF YOU THIS HAS BEEN A VERY DIFFICULT AND HUMBLING EXPERIENCE I WANT TO THANK THE COURT FOR ALLOWING ME BLADI AND THOTO TO RETURN TO OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL OF THE LOVE AND SUPPORT"
Even though A$AP Rocky is currently out of prison, the final verdict is expected on August 14.
