Judge allows Rick Ross to travel

Posted: Updated:

Rick Ross will now be able to travel outside of metro Atlanta for business only. 

"He hasn’t been able to make appearances because he’s been limited to his two residences in Fayette County. Now he can travel as long as we meet all of the conditions that we set out in court," said Ross' attorney, Steve Sadow.

The motion comes with a set of conditions.

Ross must send all travel information to the Fayette County District Attorney, including where he's staying and what event he's attending. 

"It means he can continue to do business the way he has done in the past to earn an income, take care of his family, take care of his children, take care of his financial obligations," said Sadow.

The judge also said that once Ross returns to the airport, he has no more than two hours to get back to his Fayette County home. 

Ross, whose real name is William Roberts, said he's happy to be back on the road.

"It feels real good you know, everyone that’s supported you, all your fans," said Ross, "Its a lot of people that depend on me and I think that’s the bigger picture, versus me just being able to travel."

Ross faces kidnapping, aggravated assault and battery charges. Back in June the rapper was accused of beating a man in his Fayetteville guest house. According to arrest warrants, that man was beaten so badly that he, at one point, lost use of his jaw.

"He’s innocent and I think there will be a lot of doubt created as things are uncovered in the weeks and months to happen," said Sadow.

Ross' bodyguard, Nadrian James, is also accused of being involved in this incident.  On Thursday, his bond was set at $250,000.
