Rick Ross‘ TGIF was anything but celebratory. The rapper was arrested in Greensboro, N.C., Friday night (June 27) due to a warrant that was issued for his failure to attend a court date in the city, which stemmed from a previous arrest last year.

The ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’ creator was arrested following a performance at SuperJam 2014 at the Greensboro Coliseum Friday. Last year, Ross was taken into custody for marijuana possession. Due to his failure to show up to the court date to answer to the charges, cops in Greensboro were waiting to take the 38-year-old rhymer to jail once again last night.

Ross was eventually released from the Greensboro Detention Center by police after posting a $1,000 bond.

In 2011, the Maybach Music Group leader was also arrested for marijuana possession in Lousiana. Cops hauled Ross off to jail after they smelled the odor of weed coming from his hotel room and, upon further investigation, found the illegal substance sitting in plain view.
