Rick Ross Released From House Arrest In Pistol-Whipping Case



Rick Ross received some good news this past Halloween weekend. The MMG boss was granted release from house arrest Friday in his pistol-whipping case, TMZ reports.

Ross was reportedly granted release from home confinement on the conditions he stays away from his victim and notifies officials before leaving the state of Georgia.

Ross was arrested in June after him and his bodyguard were accused of beating two workers for throwing a birthday party at his million-dollar mansion.

The workers allegedly suffered extensive injuries in the head and face after being beat with a Glock handgun, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. One man reportedly suffered two chipped teeth and a neck injury.

“The victim lost use of his jaw and is restricted to soft foods and liquid diet only as a result of not being able to chew food,” arrest warrants obtained by AJC state.

Rick Ross, 39, posted $2 million bond in the case, Billboard reports.

A Georgia judge initially denied Ross’ request for bond until the rapper said he’d put up his home. Ross pulled $1 million equity from boxer Evander Holyfield’s former estate he bought last year that’s valued at more than $5 million. He reportedly got the remainder from a $500,000 corporate surety bond from a bond bailsman and threw in $500,000 cash.

Ross’ attorney reportedly said he would forfeit the entire Holyfield mansion, if the rapper does anything to obstruct justice or intimidate any witness.

U.S. Marshals’ Fugitive Task Force picked up Ross at his Fayette County, GA residence the morning of Wednesday, June 24, according to Billboard. He was subsequently charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery charges. Bodyguard Nadrian Lateef James, 42, faced the same charges.

Ross was arrested June 10 on a traffic violation and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
