Rapper A$AP Rocky has arrived back home in the United States after being freed from a Swedish jail while he waits for the verdict in his assault trial.

A high-profile court case of USA rapper A$AP Rocky over an alleged assault in Sweden has entered its final day on Friday, with testimonies from witnesses and final statements to be heard.

A$AP Rocky's bodyguard arrives at the district court, during the third day of the rapper's trial, in Stockholm, Sweden August 2, 2019.

After three days of testimony, a judge in Sweden said he will issue a verdict on the "gross assault" charges against A$AP Rocky on August 14.

The incident happened on June 30, as A$AP Rocky, his bodyguard, as well as his crew were touring Stockholm after a show.

Rocky left Sweden just hours after judges chose to release him from prison while they decide the fate of his assault case. "He feels that he has been able to tell his view of events", Stromberg told reporters outside the court room.

Ultimately, Suneson argued Rocky should be sent to a Swedish prison for six months.

That means that the Galaxy Note 10 will ship with three cameras on the back, while the Galaxy Note 10 + will include four of them. As for Verizon getting the SD 855 variants of the Note 10, that could be due to compatibility issues with the Verizon network.

US President Donald Trump had previously attempted to use his leverage to free the troubled rapper.

A$AP Rocky won't be joining any Swedish sight seeing excursions anytime soon, according to a recent report by TMZ.

Before landing in LAX, he posted some gratitude on Instagram.

Mayers' release came after his three-day trial concluded Friday. She and a friend, testifying anonymously at Stockholm District Court, both maintained their previous statements to police that they saw Mayers and his partners assaulting Jafari. In the meantime, USA officials say he is already on his way back to the United States.

Even though A$AP Rocky is now out of prison, the final verdict is expected on August 14.

Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven heard an appeal from Trump in July, but said he couldn't interfere in a legal case. A$AP Rocky and his two associates jetted to the United States nearly immediately following their release by the judge. Much of the trial has also focused on whether a bottle was used as a weapon, as the plaintiff suffered cuts that medical examiners said seemed to be from glass.
