Police arrested “Hustlin'” rapper Rick Ross and his bodyguard on charges of kidnapping and aggravated battery Wednesday in Fayetville, Ga.
Ross, 39, whose real name is William Leonard Roberts II, and 42-year-old bodyguard Nadrian Lateef James were arrested “without incident” following an investigation into an alleged early June assault, according to Fayette County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Allen Stevens.
Ross, the founder of Maybach Music Group, was also charged with aggravated assault, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Ross allegedly got into a fight with and pistol-whipped someone working on his home.
Ross’ record label did not immediately respond to reporters’ request for comment.
It’s not the first arrest for Ross. Earlier this month, he was arrested on a misdemeanor marijuana charge. He was also arrested on marijuana charges in North Carolina in 2013, Louisiana in 2011 and Miami in 2008.
