Rick Ross Posts $2 Million Bond To Get Out Of Jail (A Top Story)

On Friday Rick Ross Posts $2 Million Bond To Get Out Of Jail was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Rick Ross has given a new meaning to "Ballin'." After first being denied bail, on his kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated batter charges, the Maybach Music head had a bond hearing Wednesday night and was miraculously able to come up with a $2 million bond in a pinch to get out of jail.

How does one scrape together $2 million at the last minute? If you're Rick Ross that means coming up with $500,000 in cash, $500,000 from a bail bondsman, and $1 million in equity from the Holyfield mansion he owns, as TMZ reports.

Luckily, Ross purchased the mansion from boxer Evander Holyfield for $5.8 million back in February of 2014. It's reportedly the largest single family home in all of Georgia. If Ross wants to keep it, he'll have to avoid intimidating or threatening any witnesses--which his lawyer promised. At the hearing, the jurors were reminded of how "vicious" Ross was when he "dragged the groundskeeper back into the house and beat him multiple times" and "threatened to 'pop a cap'" if he told anyone.

Ross will be spending a lot of time in his Holyfield mansion now, as he's on house arrest with an ankle monitor. Read more - here.
