Finally! He has returned home! A$AP Rocky touched down in the U.S. on Saturday, being free for the first time in a month. The judges in Sweden in charge of his criminal case allowed him to leave the country as they discussed the verdict.
The rapper was very happy, as he should be, smiling and taking pics with people. Even Trump commented on the news:
A$AP Rocky released from prison and on his way home to the United States from Sweden. It was a Rocky Week, get home ASAP A$AP!

As reported by TMZ, signs point to a not guilty verdict. Prosecutors in the case asked the judges to keep Rocky behind bars because he remained a flight risk. The judges had the option to release him from custody but have him remain in Sweden but they decided to let him return to the U.S.
Sources close to Rocky says he’s never going back to Sweden. Even though it is said race was not a factor in this case, everyone close to the situation thinks it was. Prosecutors thought that Rocky hit the alleged victim over the head with a bottle, but not a single witness supported the theory, nor did the obtained video. The final decision about this case will be written and will not require the rapper to be in court for the verdict.
Fans of the rapper are definitely glad to finally see this situation coming to a close and that he is one step closer to becoming free.
