Swedish authorities arrested the 30-year-old rapper and two of his associates, Bladimir Emilio Corniel and David Tyrone Rispers, in early July on charges of assault after a June 30 street fight with a 19-year-old man, Mustafa Jafari.
"The defendants have claimed that they acted in self-defense", read one part of a statement the court put out.
The court also ruled the self-defence claims of the three defendants were not applicable to the circumstances of the incident. "Nor could they have perceived themselves to be in such a situation", the judge added. He and two members of his entourage will not receive jail sentences, however, having already spent over a month in a Swedish detention center.
At one point U.S. -Sweden relations got so tense that Carl Risch, assistant secretary of State of consular affairs, flew in to monitor the situation.
During the trial, prosecutors played video footage that showed the rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, throwing a young man to the ground. Even though he received a suspended sentence, Rocky will have to pay some fees and fines, but those are not yet revealed. "I wanna say this though". O'Brien wrote in a letter to the Swedish government during the trial that warned of "negative consequences" for American-Swedish relations in the event Mayers wasn't released.
The news comes after Rocky was allowed to return to the U.S. That was a scary, humbling experience, but I'm here right now.
