A$AP Rocky is unlikely to be at Wireless after being detained in Stockholm (Picture: Getty)Rapper A$AP Rocky is unlikely to be performing at Wireless Festival 2019 after Swedish authorities were granted permission to hold him for up to two weeks.
A$AP is billed to perform on Sunday at the festival in Finsbury Park, London, but was arrested two days ago in Stockholm after his security team allegedly got into a fight with a man over a pair of broken headphones.
The rapper posted videos of the altercation on his Instagram page, showing him trying to calm the situation down, claiming the men had been following him and his team around the city.
He was later detained in the early hours of Wednesday morning and could now be held for up to two weeks over the incident, according to TMZ.
The site claims a judge granted authorities permission for him to be held for up to two weeks ‘while prosecutors investigate further to determine if they want to charge him with aggravated assault’.
If charged, A$AP could be facing up to six years in prison, after than man was left bruised and bloodied in the altercation.
