(CNN)An investigation into the Swedish man allegedly involved in a brawl with US rapper A$AP Rocky has been dropped, the man's lawyer, Magnus Stromberg, told CNN on Monday.

Stromberg said he had received written confirmation of this from the prosecutor, and while his client is relieved this was not unexpected. "He has been the subject of an assault, but he has not committed a crime," Stromberg added.
Slobodan Jovicic, A$AP Rocky's lawyer, talks to media on July 19 following a Stockholm court's decision to extend the rap artist's detention.
The Swedish prosecution service also confirmed to CNN that the investigation into the man has been discontinued and he is no longer suspected of any crime.
A$AP Rocky was detained on July 3 and is preparing to start his third week behind bars accused of assault after his alleged involvement in the incident in Stockholm on June 30. The rapper's lawyer, Slobodan Jovicic, says he was defending himself after being assaulted and that his client is innocent.
