Mellberg also confirms that G-Eazy plead guilty to all three charges. He told his side of the story in court and was cooperative. He admitted to assaulting the security guard by punching him several times. G-Eazy also admitted to resisting arrest and possession of narcotics.

Mellberg tells E! News that G-Eazy was in possession of two bags of cocaine (0.8 grams). The investigation is complete and the case is closed. G-Eazy won’t face any jail time.

Following his show in Stockholm on Wednesday night, G-Eazy was at club Solidaritet in Stockholm with Halsey and Sean Kingston.

TMZ reported that G-Eazy was partying in the club and “acting belligerent” when security approached the rapper to get him to calm down. That’s when G-Eazy “started throwing punches, striking one guard in the face,” according to the site.
