Uh-oh. Rick Ross was arrested…again. The rapper was nabbed by police in Fayette County, Georgia, and charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery following an incident that took place in early June.
Rick Ross was apprehended on June 24, and charged with counts of kidnapping and assault. Cops arrived at the rapper’s residence in the early morning and arrested him for an incident in which he allegedly ‘pistol-whipped’ a man working on his home earlier this month.
The arrest reportedly went down ‘without incident,’ according to the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, Allan Stevens. He added that the investigation “regarding an assault which occurred at a residence on Highway 279,’ was initiated on June 7.
Rick’s exact arrest charges include kidnapping, aggravated battery and aggravated assault. His bodyguard was also arrested and named as a suspect in the case. The pair allegedly got into a fight with the man working on Rick’s home, which led to the rapper ‘pistol-whipping’ the victim.
This isn’t Rick’s first run-in with the law either. It was just on June 10 that he was pulled over for tinted windows, and subsequently arrested when cops smelled marijuana inside his car and began a search. He was processed on a drug misdemeanor charge after this incident, but the kidnapping/assault case certainly seems a bit more serious. Rick was arrested for marijuana possession in 2008, 2011 and 2013, as well.
