Members of the Caucus, including Hakeem Jeffries and Andre Carson along with Congressman Adriano Espaillat who is part of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, wants to stand on the steps of the US Capitol Wednesday and demand A $ AP's release from a Swedish jail.
As TMZ reported, A $ AP is being held while prosecutors decide whether to charge him for aggravated assault. A $ AP and his crew did indeed attack a man on the streets July 1, but only after the man harassed and physically attacked A $ AP and a bodyguard and allegedly grabbed a woman's butt. In fact, A $ AP tried to diffuse the situation, to no avail.
TMZ broke the story … A $ AP was hero in horrid conditions . OUT. Embassy official said the jail smelled like a toilet. It's unclear if A $ AP has been moved since our report.
Rep Jeffries says the detention is proof the hip-hop police is not just a phenomenon.
The State Dept. is now involved in the case, but A $ AP and 2 members of his crew are still being held.
