Rick Ross has formally been indicted in the incident concerning his groundskeeper, for which Ross was arrested on charges of kidnapping and assault this past June. Initial reports from last summer indicated that Ross physically assaulted his groundskeeper, pulled him into his house and pistol whipped him.
There have been conflicting reports of the events surrounding the incident since then, however. Ross’ team argues that Ross’ treatment of the groundskeeper, Johnathan Zamudio, was warranted on account of self-defense, considering Zamudio was allegedly committing a felony on Ross’ property. Furthermore, in a September lawsuit that Ross filed against Zamudio, he claimed that not only did the groundskeeper make up the incident, but he’s in cahoots with 50 Cent, Ross’ most prominent foe.
There isn’t a trial date set yet, and we’ll continue to update you as more information becomes available. As of now, according to TMZ, Ross has been indicted on charges of kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm while committing a crime.
