Initially, A$AP Rocky was to remain in custody for two weeks while an investigation occurred and now, the Swedish authorities claim to need more time. According to BBC News, Swedish prosecutors now have until July 25 to decide whether or not to pursue criminal charges against A$AP Rocky.
The courts decided to keep A$AP Rocky in custody, deeming him a flight risk, according to prosecutor Daniel Suneson.
“We have worked intensively with the investigation and need more time, until Thursday next week in order to complete the preliminary investigation,” Mr. Suneson says.
