Rapper RICK ROSS is facing kidnapping and assault charges after a U.S. MARSHALS SERVICES FUGITIVE TASK FORCE and deputies arrested him at his mansion outside ATLANTA, according to several press reports.
JIM JOYNER, a supervisor with the TASK FORCE, told AP that ROSS and a man described as his bodyguard were taken into custody this morning.
JOYNER said ROSS was being held in the FAYETTE COUNTY jail on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery. The bodyguard, whose name wasn't released, faces the same charges.
JOYNER said details of the charges would have to come from local authorities, who weren't immediately available.
ROSS was just arrested earlier this month on a charge of possessing five marijuana joints.
