FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. (CBS News) – Rapper Rick Ross and his bodyguard were arrested Wednesday morning on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery.

CBS affiliate WGCL in Atlanta reports the U.S. Marshals Service’s Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force assisted the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office in arresting Ross, whose real name is William Leonard Roberts, and another man, Nadrian James, described as his bodyguard.

Ross and James were denied bond Wednesday morning, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Police said the arrests stem from a report made on June 7 about an alleged assault at Ross’ Fayette County home. Roberts forced a man into his Fayetteville guest house and held him in a bedroom for several hours, according to police.
