Rick Ross has been indicted in a Georgia court for allegedly attacking and pistol-whipping a groundskeeper at his home last summer, but Ross has aruged that it was in an act of self-defence. According to court documents obtained by Pitchfork, a Fayette County grand jury formally indicted and charged Ross on nine counts including kidnapping, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, (along with Ross' bodyguard, Nadrian James, who was also indicted on all nine counts.) Ross' lawyers filed a motion contending he should be immune from prosecution on Monday, due to the state's law on self-defense.

Ross was arrested for allegedly pistol-whipping a man working at one of his home and preventing him from leaving last June. He was then released on bond. According to The AJC, if Ross violates the terms of his bond, he must give up ownership of his mansion, previously owned by boxer Evander Holyfield.
