This is just the next in a long string of problems facing the rapper.

Rapper Rick Ross is becoming very friendly with his local police. The entertainer was taken into custody by the US Marshals Service fugitive task force on Wednesday morning with a man described as his bodyguard. He was arrested and is being held in jail on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery.

According to Time, the incident also included a builder who was working on updating his Atlanta mansion. The builder said that Ross got into an altercation with one of the workers who were fixing his home and pistol-whipped him. His body guard, who hasn't bene revealed, is also facing similar charges.

This incident is rumored to have happened nearly two week ago.

Jim Joyner, a supervisor with the Marshals' Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, told the AP news agency that officers showed up at the mansion, once owned by boxer Evander Holyfield, but someone inside refused to let them in.

"They refused to open the gate, so we opened the gate for them," Joyner said. "They didn't put up a struggle or anything."

He then went on to explain that once the officers were able to get by the gate, someone inside opened the front door so they didn't have to break it down. Ross and the bodyguard were then taken into custody without incident.

Fayette County authorities arrested Ross on a misdemeanor marijuana charge on June 10. He was also arrested on pot charges in Miami in 2008, in Louisiana in 2011 and in North Carolina in 2013.

It is unclear where the kidnapping charges came from, but we will keep you updated.
