Rick Ross Released from Jail on $2 Million Bond

Rick Ross is a free man. After a week behind bars, the MMG mogul has been released from jail after posting $2 million bond.

He was arrested on June 24 and charged with kidnapping, aggravated battery, and aggravated assault. The arrest stemmed from an incident involving a confrontation between Ross and a groundskeeper at his home, formerly owned by Evander Holyfield. He allegedly pistol-whipped the man with a Glock 9MM pistol, causing injury to his jaw, neck, and teeth.

During Ross’ bond hearing in Fayette County, Ga. on Wednesday (via TMZ), the judge approved his release once he posted $2 million bond including $1 million equity from the ex-Holyfield mansion he owns and another local property, $500,000 surety bond (from a bail bondsman), and $500,000 in cash.

Ross’ attorney promised that the rapper would forfeit the entire Holyfield property to the county if he intimidates or threatens any witnesses.
