A$AP Rocky Trial: Witness Revises Statement about Bottle

A$AP Rocky Trial: Witness Revises Statement about Bottle

Friday, 02 August 2019 07:38 AM

STOCKHOLM (AP) — A witness in the A$AP Rocky assault case has revised her story from initial police reports, testifying in a Swedish court that she didn't actually see the American rapper hitting a man with a bottle.

The young woman and her friend, testifying anonymously, were questioned via video link Friday at Stockholm District Court.

The third day of a trial where the rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, and two other suspects are accused by prosecutors of beating 19-year old Mustafa Jafari, will focus on witness testimonies, including the rapper's bodyguard.

Whether or not Jafari, who got into an argument with Mayers' entourage in Stockholm on June 30, was hit with parts or a whole bottle has become one of the key issues at the trial.
