Rick Ross has dodged multiple felony charges, stemming from an incident in 2015 where he is accused of assaulting a groundskeeper at his Atlanta estate.
According to TMZ, the rap mogul struck a plea deal on Tuesday (April 4), in which he pleaded no contest on one felony count of aggravated assault, and receiving time served in jail and a $10,000 fine.
Ross also pleaded no contest to five misdemeanors — assault, battery, 2 counts of pointing a pistol at someone, and possession of marijuana — and was given 60 months probation for the charges.
Being that he’s a first time felony offender, he can pay the fine and the felony conviction is erased from his record.
Ross was originally facing a number of felony charges, including kidnapping, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and more.
In June 2015, Ross allegedly prevented a groundskeeper from leaving his Fayette County, Georgia home by force and pistol-whipping him.
