Prosecutors in Sweden are dropping their investigation into a man they say was involved in a fight with American rapper ASAP Rocky.

Magnus Stromberg represents the alleged victim and said they are happy but not surprised by the decision.

Rocky, a platinum-selling Grammy-nominated artist whose real name is Rakim Mayers, has been behind bars since early this month as police investigate the incident in Stockholm.

It was not clear who else was involved, but videos published on social media appear to show a person being violently thrown on to the ground by Rocky.

Prosecutors have until Thursday to make a decision on the investigation. Rocky’s lawyer said they will not comment until Thursday.

The case has drawn the attention of celebrities including Sean “Diddy” Combs, Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian West, Kanye West and even Donald Trump.
