Report: Rick Ross Indicted for Pistol Whipping Groundskeeper

Report: Rick Ross Indicted for Pistol Whipping Groundskeeper

His lawyers are reportedly setting up a self-defense legal argument.

Published March 1, 2016

Rick Ross was arrested last June after an incident with his groundskeeper in which he was accused of kidnapping and assaulting him. After his arrest, the Miami rapper and Maybach Music Group headman posted bail and served some time under house arrest.

Well now, it seems Ross is reportedly headed back to court for the occurrence. TMZ is reporting that Rozay has been indicted, but interestingly his legal team doesn’t seem to worry about the recent developments.

The write-up relays that Ross' attorney, Steve Sadow​, is prepared to argue that the entire incident was done in self-defense. Johnathan Zamudio, the groundskeeper, was committing felonies on Ross' property, according to Sadow and therefore Ross had grounds to take action to defend his home.

In September, Rick Ross countersued Zamudio and claimed that the events of that day were all fabricated. He even made the assertion that Zamudio was close with 50 Cent and that the two were plotting against him. No trial date has yet been set. Currently Ross faces charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and possession of a firearm while committing a crime.
