Rapper Rick Ross appeared in court last week, pleading innocent to charges of kidnapping and assault dating back to 2015.

As previously reported, Ross was arrested two years ago, along with his bodyguard Nadrian James, accused of attacking former employees Jonathan Zamudio and Leo Caceres at his home in Atlanta, Georgia.

Ross and James claim that they were acting in self-defence, after discovering that people unknown to them were being allowed into the rapper’s home by the two workers. Things apparently came to a head when Ross confronted Zamudio.

James has testified that it was Zamudio who struck first and denies that any kidnap took place.

The case continues.
