Rocky was convicted of assault in Sweden after getting into an altercation with some men on the street. The “Praise The Lord” rapper claimed he was acting in self-defense after the “drug addicts” harassed him and his crew. He pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Rocky was convicted of assault, however, the Stockholm District Court ruled that Rocky and his two security guards would receive conditional sentences, meaning no jail time or fine. (RELATED: A$AP Rocky Releases Statement Following Swedish Assault Conviction)
