Stockholm, Sweden – G-Eazy was reportedly released from a Swedish jail on Friday (May 4). As reported by The Blast, G-Eazy’s Swedish lawyer, Mikael Westerlund, said the Beautiful & Damned rapper was convicted on charges of assault, possession and use of narcotics.
The consequences of the conviction have not been disclosed but Westerlund did confirm G-Eazy was a “free man.”
The 28-year-old was arrested early Thursday morning (May 3) at a club in Stockholm, shortly after he’d finished performing a show. Due to his reportedly “belligerent” behavior, the club’s security guards asked him to calm down but G-Eazy started throwing punches.
Once police arrived on the scene, they found him in possession of 1.5 grams of cocaine and a rolled up $100 bill.
G-Eazy told Swedish police he purchased and used drugs, and admitted to punching a security guard in the face.
Westerlund says his client plans on leaving Sweden immediately.
The European run of the Beautiful & Damned Tour is expected to resume on May 6 in Copenhagen.

G-Eazy was reportedly arrested in Sweden early Thursday morning (May 3) for cocaine possession and assault. According to TMZ, the Bay Area native was involved in an alleged altercation at a club following his performance at Annexet in Stockholm.
The “Sober” rapper was reportedly acting belligerent. Consequently, he was approached by several security guards who asked him to settle down. Instead, the 28-year-old allegedly started throwing punches, and hit one member of the security team multiple times in the face.
Once police arrived on the scene, G-Eazy was reportedly detained. It was then the authorities discovered he was in possession of cocaine.
G-Eazy is reportedly still in custody on charges of suspicion of assault, possession and use of narcotics.
The Stockholm show marked the first stop on the European leg of The Beautiful & Damned Tour. Halsey — G-Eazy’s superstar singer girlfriend — and rapper Sean Kingston were with him at the time of his arrest.
The tour is scheduled to wrap up in Dublin, Ireland on June 8 but it’s unclear how his arrest will affect the remaining dates.
