A$AP Rocky is still behind bars in Sweden after their Supreme Court rejected an appeal for his alleged involvement in a brawl in Stockholm. According to The Daily Mail, a Swedish district court decided that Rocky should be kept in custody while prosecutors investigate the incident, which took place on June 30th.

Rocky’s attorney, Henrik Olsson Lilja, challenged the court’s decision, but it was immediately rejected by the court of appeals. The district court agreed with prosecutors that Rocky was a flight risk and should be kept in custody during the investigation.
