A$AP Rocky remains in custody in Sweden after the authorities categorized him as a flight risk following his arrest for his alleged role in a street fight this week. According to the Swedish Prosecution Office, A$AP's bodyguard was released from custody on Wednesday night and the charges were dismissed.

But A$AP and the two other men arrested remain in custody because (with a little help from Google Translate) "there is danger of escape and there is a risk that they can, on their own, destroy the investigation."

There will be a hearing in the case tomorrow and prosecutors believe the investigation will take two weeks, so there is a chance A$AP could be in custody for a bit longer.

As The Blast previously reported, A$AP was arrested in Sweden along with three other people after a fight on the streets that he claims started after a group of guys hit his bodyguard with a pair of headphones.

The rapper was arrested on allegations of assault, according to the Swedish Prosecution Office. A$AP was arrested at around 1:00 AM local time on Wednesday after he performed at the Smash hip-hop festival in Stockholm.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A$AP posted a few videos of the confrontation that led to his arrest, where he appeared to be trying to play peacemaker.

He captioned one video, "SO A FEW DRUG ADDICTS ARE NOT MY FANS , WE DONT KNOW THESE GUYS AND WE DIDNT WANT TROUBLE , THEY FOLLOWED US FOR 4 BLOCKS , AND THEY WERE SLAPPING GIRLS BUTTS WHO PASSED , GIVE ME A BREAK."

In another video, A$AP can be seen trying to tell the guys who were allegedly following him to go one way so he and his friends can go another. The men can be heard arguing about a pair of headphones, which A$AP claims one of the guys used to hit his bodyguard.
