The video, which was taken Sunday evening, appears to show the rapper grabbing a man and tossing him several feet. After the video surfaced online, Rocky shared two videos related to the alleged assault on his Instagram.
The videos show two men speaking to Rocky and his entourage, with Rocky claiming in both that the men continued to follow them after accusing Rocky’s bodyguard of breaking one of the man’s headphones.
One of the videos appears to show one of the men swinging their headphones at Rocky’s bodyguard.
Elsewhere in the video, a girl can be heard telling Rocky that one of the men slapped her butt, as well as her friend’s butt.
In the comments section for one of the videos, Rocky later wrote “I’m innocent,” which was followed up with “They trynna arrest me out here now, smh.”
Rocky was in Stockholm for the Smash Festival, which he performed at Tuesday night.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Stockholm Prosecutor Office was initially unable to provide further information other than to say a request had been made for Rocky’s arrest.
