Rick Ross Sued for Doggie Death

Neighbor files suit against the rapper for a vicious attack on her pooch.

Michael Vick and DMX have a new friend in the doghouse. According to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ, Miami rapper Rick Ross is in hot water for the death of a three-year-old Yorkshire Terrier named Banks.
The heavyweight hip hop star, one of the performers at the 2011 BET Awards, ran afoul of a neighbor after three of his pitbulls escaped his Atlanta home and entered the neighbor's property. The pitbulls reportedly attacked the terrier, who suffered four large bite wounds on the back and neck. The dog's owner was eventually forced to euthanize it.
Ross received a ticket from the police as a result of the incident, but the woman who lost her dog still wants justice. She is seeking $15,000 in damages and court costs.
