Rapper Rick Ross can’t seem to catch a break these days; he was arrested earlier today on charges of kidnap and aggravated assault. I really think that it’s the location that Rick Ross decided to live coupled with poor decisions that keeps landing him in trouble.

Check out the details below.

Rapper Rick Ross and his bodyguard were arrested Wednesday morning on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery. After knowing Rick Ross for many years as a nice guy; I wonder what’s the real story? Something dramatic must have happened!

U.S. Marshals Service’s Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force assisted the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office in arresting Ross, whose real name is William Leonard Roberts, and another man, described as his bodyguard. Let me put this in context Fayette County is RACIST, RACIST RACIST! They are known for racil profiling and tons of run in with black men and police brutality. Not excuse Rick Ross but sometimes there are bigger things at play!

This is not Ross Ross’ first arrest; he was arrested as recently as June 10 on a traffic violation and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. He was released from jail later that night.

In 2011, Ross was arrested for marijuana possession in Louisiana. He was issued a misdemeanor summons and released. Both incidents were minor but this incident seems really odd for the laid back rapper.

Ross and his bodyguard will be held at the Fayette County jail for an initial appearance and a bond hearing.

I recently had the opportunity to meet and greet with the lovely Jada Pinkett Smith at a private press luncheon; where she promoted her newest film ‘Magic Mike XXL’ alongside Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, Joe Manganiello, Kevin Nash, Adam Rodriguez, Stephen “tWitch” Boss, Donald Glover, and Michael Strahan. The star was very candid about her apprehension about taking on the role of Rome a worker in the sex industry and how her realization that there can be dignity in the adult entertainment industry.
