G-Eazy has been convicted on charges of assault and drug possession in Sweden, but will not face jail time.

The 'No Limit' hitmaker - whose real name is Gerald Earl Gilliam - was arrested in Stockholm in the early hours of Thursday (03.05.18) morning after he allegedly fought with an official at a nightclub in the Swedish capital, and it has now been revealed that he will face charges for the incident, but won't be headed behind bars.

The rapper's Swedish lawyer Mikael Westerlund told The Blast that Easy is now a "free man", though at the time of writing it is unclear what his extent of his punishment - which is likely to include fines - will be.

Eazy's conviction comes after it was recently alleged that he was carrying 1.5 grams of cocaine in his pocket at the time of his arrest, as well as a "rolled up $100 bill", which police claim has drug residue on it.

In a police report, which was obtained by The Blast, it was claimed that the 28-year-old rapper had admitted to using the drug to police, before the two bags of cocaine amounting to 1.5 grams was found during a search of the star.

Police also claimed to have noticed "white powder on the nose" of the 'Him & I' musician - whose girlfriend Halsey and friend Sean Kingston were also at the nightclub - and reported he showed visible signs of drugs use, including "tense, convulsive jaw muscles," and described his demeanour as "insane, crazy and rabid."

The report went on to state that Eazy admitted to having the drugs in his possession during an interview with police, as well as confirming he struck a guard and tried to escape after being detained.

A security guard at Solidaritet nightclub noticed the start of a scuffle in the VIP room of the club, and when he stepped in to intervene, he claims Eazy struck him in the head three to four times, causing "swelling and pain".

Previously, a video was released which shows Eazy being put into a police car whilst Halsey is heard shouting that she was hit in the face.

It is thought she got struck by a security guard during the altercation, though no further information is known at the time of writing.

Prosecutor Carl Mellberg told a Swedish radio station: "I think that he is probably suspected of violence against an official and that there is also a risk that the suspect will deviate or otherwise avoid lawsuit or punishment."
