A$AP Rocky 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 after he performed at the Smash hip-hop festival in Stockholm.

The investigation is in its "initial stage" (according to a press release translated from the office's website) and prosecutors will decide by noon on July 6 whether or not to go forward with the case.

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.
