After a week in jail, Ross is looking for an out
Last week, news broke that Rick Ross had been arrested on felony charges of kidnapping and assault after he allegedly pistol-whipped his groundskeeper, and held him against his will. Shortly after that, an updated report revealed that he’d been denied bail by a judge, and sure enough, he’s been sitting in a Georgia jail for the past seven days.
Today, Ross appeared in front of a judge with his lawyer, reportedly to make another attempt at being granted bail. The ruling hasn’t come down yet, but it may be an uphill climb for Ross. In addition to the charges pending against him, his victim, the groundskeeper, reportedly suffered injuries so severe he has to be fed through a straw.
We’ll have an update as soon as one is available.
UPDATE: Rick Ross has been granted bail by a Georgia judge after appearing in court today.
The Miami rapper, sitting solemnly behind his attorney, watched as a judge agreed to accept Ross’ infamous Holyfield estate and $1 million in cash in exchange for his temporary freedom. Here’s a video round-up, courtesy of independent TV journalist Joe Floccari.
