Swedish hip-hop artist David Moses Jassy today pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges stemming from an alleged Hollywood road rage incident on November 23rd, in which he killed John Osnes, a jazz musician. Osnes, also described as a pedestrian rights activist, was said to have slapped his hands onto Jassy's rented SUV when the vehicle crossed into the crosswalk. An altercation began resulting in Jassy throwing a punch, a kick and then fatally running Osnes over. Jassy remains in jail with bail set at $1 million.
