Remembering Woodstock: Naked men, bounced checks and LSD

Jason Stone played hooky from summer camp and tripped on LSD-spiked watermelon, Graham Nash was so high his memories of performing are hazy, and Robin Naylor, at 15, saw her first naked man. Stone, Nash and Naylor were just a handful of the more than 450,000 people who attended, or performed at, Woodstock in 1969, and each has a different story to tell as the music festival that defined an era marks its 50th anniversary this week.

A$AP Rocky spared jail after being found guilty of Stockholm brawl

U.S. rapper A$AP Rocky was convicted in Sweden on Wednesday of assault over a Stockholm street brawl, but spared time in jail after a high-profile trial that had led President Donald Trump to accuse Sweden of treating him unfairly. A$AP Rocky, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, and two members of his entourage were found guilty of kicking and beating 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari after an argument. But the court said allegations they hit him with a glass bottle, which might have brought a tougher sentence, were not proven.
