Rick Ross Arrested For Kidnapping, Aggravated Assault And Battery
Damn, Rozay can’t get right with the police these days. Ricky Ross was picked up by the po po this morning for kidnapping, assault and battery. COTDAYUUUUM!
According to Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:
Rapper Rick Ross and another person described as his bodyguard were arrested Wednesday morning on kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery charges in Fayette County.
Ross, whose birth name is William Leonard Roberts II, will be held at the Fayette County jail for an initial appearance and bond hearing, according to the U.S. Marshals Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, which assisted the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office in Wednesday’s arrest.
Wednesday’s run-in with Fayette deputies isn’t Ross’ first brush with the law.
Ross was arrested two weeks ago on a misdemeanor marijuana charge in Fayette County. He was also arrested on pot charges in Miami in 2008, in Louisiana in 2011 and in North Carolina in 2013.
Wonder what this is about. One of his kids? His girlfriend?
Here’s the update via TMZ:
The incident in question happened about two weeks ago, according to the Marshals, and it involved a confrontation between Ross and a man doing work at one of his homes (which was previously owned by Evander Holyfield).
Law enforcement sources tell us the assault charge is for a pistol-whipping, and the kidnapping charge is because the man was allegedly not allowed to leave the house.
Ross was picked up at his main residence, along with his bodyguard, and arrested without incident.
We’re told the Marshals were contacted a couple of days ago by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department to assist in the arrest. The Marshals typically assist in high profile and dangerous warrants.
Since Ross travels a lot, the Marshals gathered information about his movements over the course of the past couple of days and decided Wednesday morning at his home was the safest time for the bust.
