Rick Ross arrested in North Carolina for missing court date

By Kyle Johnson,

Rapper Rick Ross was arrested by police in North Carolina on Friday night over a warrant that was issued after he failed to appear in court last year.

After he got done performing at the Greensboro Coliseum for SuperJam 2014, Ross found police waiting to take him custody since he failed to make a court appearance after he was arrested on a misdemeanor of marijuana possession, The Associated Press reports.

The rapper posted $1,000 bail and was released shortly after being taken into custody. No statement from Ross or a spokesperson has been issued.

Billboard notes that over the past six years, Ross has had to deal with various legal issues. In 2008 he was arrested for guns and marijuana possession and then later in the year he was in civil court over assault and battery charges and then in 2010 he was sued for copyright infringement.

A year later, Ross was arrested for marijuana possession again and also had to deal with another copyright infringement lawsuit.
