Rick Ross was arrested today for the second time this month in Fayette County, Georgia, but this go around, things are much more serious than a simple marijuana possession charge. According to TMZ, Ross was taken in by a special fugitive task force of the U.S. Marshals Service and charged with kidnapping, assault, and aggravated battery. 

Details of the arrest were not released, but Ross reportedly pistol-whipped a groundskeeper who was doing repairs on his house a few weeks back. It's unclear about what Ross and the worker were arguing about, but Rozay reportedly forced the worker into his house at gunpoint and then pistol-whipped him twice. The worker suffered injuries to his jaw and neck, and also had two chipped teeth from the incident.

Ross' bodyguard was also arrested at the residence this morning, and they're both currently in police custody. According to Billboard​, both Ross and his bodyguard were denied bail in the case, though he is cooperating with police. We will continue to update with details of the situation as they are released.
