Rick Ross Released From Jail With an Ankle Monitor After Posting $2 Million Bail
The “Free Rick Ross” movement is over just like that. After being arrested on kidnapping and assault charges last week, the Maybach Music Group head honcho has been released from jail.
Ross was apprehended by authorities and arrested on June 24, after he allegedly forced a man into a guesthouse at his Atlanta mansion and beat him in the head with a handgun. He also chipped his teeth and damaged his jaw badly.
According to TMZ, Rozay was granted $2 million bond on Wednesday (July 1) by a Fayetteville County, Ga. judge. But according to court documents, the boss had to do some serious scrambling to come up with the cash. Rozay and his lawyer masterminded the plan by taking a $1 million equity from a mansion he owns and another Georgia property, a $500,000 surety bond from a bail bondsman and another $500,000 in cash.
In order to secure his release, Ross’ lawyer also promised the judge that the rhymer would relinquish his entire mansion to the county if he threatened any witnesses.
The Miami native is facing serious charges for allegedly kidnapping and assaulting his groundskeeper. With the assistance of one of his security guards, Ross reportedly pistol whipped him and threatened to “pop a cap” in him if he squealed.
The “Hustlin'” MC kicked off his summer with run-ins with the law. On June 10, he was also arrested in Georgia after police smelled the odor of marijuana in his vehicle and then discovered five joints.
For now, Rick Ross will have to wear an ankle monitor while he is free on bail.
