A$AP Rocky told investigators he believed the man who he allegedly assaulted was on drugs and his bodyguard texted friends the same thing in the immediate aftermath of the incident.
According to an investigative report obtained by The Blast, A$AP spoke with investigators on July 17, two weeks after he was first picked up by authorities in Sweden.
During the interview, A$AP talked about how he was feeling during the alleged encounter.
"I'm very afraid of that situation," he told police (the transcript is in Swedish, posted here in English via Google Translate). "I don't know what these guys are. I'm not from here. I asked them to leave us alone."
The interrogator then played for A$AP part of the video he shot during the incident and asked him if he was scared at that moment.
After saying he was "very scared," he explained, "When negotiating with someone about a bomb threat, he or she cannot show that this is scared. It must show a poker face. Which is applicable in this situation that you refer to in the movie. I prayed them to leave us alone. That we do not want to mess or end up in prison."
