Rick Ross just escaped jail time — so now he’s counting his lucky stars and thanking the man above.
The rapper appeared before a judge on Tuesday in connection with the assault case, in which he allegedly pistol-whipped a groundskeeper at his Georgia home in June 2015.
The rapper, who faced charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery, struck a major plea deal in the case which led to the 41-year-old being a free man — sort of.
According to reports, Ricky Rozay pleaded no contest to one felony count of aggravated assault, while the other charges were dropped. Considering the sentencing was a first time felony offense, part of the deal also included paying a $10,000 fine to have the conviction deleted from his record.
Per TMZ, Ross also pleaded no contest to 5 misdemeanors — assault, battery, 2 counts of pointing a pistol at someone, and possession of less than 1 oz of pot. For all the misdemeanors, he was given a total of 60 months probation.
On Tuesday evening, the rapper tweeted: God is Great.
He followed up by tweeting it’s time to get back to the “money” and that it’s the perfect day to “boss up.”
Ross initially spent a week behind bars following the arrest two years ago. He was taken into custody at his home in Fayette County after allegedly pistol-whipping an employee who was hired to do some work on his Georgia home.
The arrest report stated that Ross and his bodyguard hit Jonathan Zamudio multiple times with a Glock 9mm gun, chipping two of his teeth. Zamudio also suffered serious neck and jaw injuries.
