He’s in Sweeden locked up in solitary confinement with no visit or phone call privileges. They are trying to keep him there for 2 weeks and if convicted he will be looking at 6 years just for defending himself in a fight. He was no way in form the aggressor in this ordeal. Pray for justice #freeflacko
On Tuesday (July 2), Rocky was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault after he was interviewed about the the alleged assault. The incident took place on Sunday (June 30) after he got into a heated dispute with a group of men who were upset over a pair of broken headphones.
Two days later, Rocky posted a video on Instagram of the moments leading up to the incident and explained the the men followed him for four blocks and were “slapping girls butts who passed.”
He also posted a nearly three-minute video showing the man broke his headphones after using them to hit Rocky’s bodyguard.
According to TMZ, the “Pretty Flacko” artist’s arrest has become a “humans rights issue” because Swedish authorities are preventing American embassy reps from meeting with Rocky and his lawyers.
In addition to becoming an international incident, the arrest has caused some professional harm for the rap star. BBC reports Rocky missed a scheduled festival in Poland on Thursday (July 4) and a gig in Ireland on Friday (July 5). He also won’t be able to perform at London’s Wireless Festival on Sunday (June 7).
If convicted, Rocky could face up to six years in prison.
