Last week, footage emerged of Rocky and his crew engaged in a street fight in Stockholm, with Rocky seen throwing a man to the ground. According to TMZ, the fight broke out after two men approached Rocky over a pair of their headphones he’d allegedly broken earlier.
Rocky went on to share two videos which show him and his crew asking the men to walk away, with the men following them. In the second video, a woman is heard talking to the crew, accusing the men of groping her and her girlfriend. “A few drug addicts are not my fans,” said Rocky in one of the video’s captions. “We don’t know these guys and we didn’t want trouble, they followed us for 4 blocks, and they were slapping girls butts who passed, give me a break.”
Rocky was later arrested on suspicion of assault, with a court ordering Rocky to be held for two weeks as the case is investigated. If convicted, he faces up to six years in prison.
Travis Scott has called for Rocky to be released during his recent set at the 2019 Wireless Festival in London; which Rocky was scheduled to perform at. As Billboard reports, The ‘Sicko Mode’ rapper can be heard repeatedly saying “Free Rocky” in the video.

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
