Bodyguard, And has been Denied Bond
Rick Ross, 39, and his bodyguard Nadrian Lateef James, 42, are accused of kidnapping and pistol whipping Jonathan Zumidio on June 7.
Zumidio asserts he was beaten so badly with a glock while staying in a guest house at Rick Ross’ mansion.
Zumidio claims he lost two teeth, injured his neck and jaw, leaving him able to only eat soft foods and that he had multiple scratches and contusions.
The court papers do not indicate what led to the attack, nor do they outline the relationship between Ross, the bodyguard and the man who was injured.

It wasn't immediately clear whether Ross and James have attorneys who could be contacted for comment.
A message left at Maybach Music Group, Ross' record label, was not returned Wednesday morning.
When officers armed with the arrest warrants showed up at the mansion, once owned by boxer Evander Holyfield, someone inside refused to open the gate leading to the home, authorities said.
"They refused to open the gate, so we opened the gate for them," Joyner said.
Once officers got past the gate, someone inside opened the front door so they didn't have to break it down, Joyner said. Ross and the bodyguard were then taken into custody without incident, Joyner said.
"They didn't put up a struggle or anything," he said.
Ross made an initial appearance before a magistrate judge Wednesday morning and the judge denied bail, Fayette County sheriff's spokesman J. Allen Stevens said.
In that case, Ross and a passenger were pulled over because the windows of the Bentley in which they were riding violated tinting regulations, Stevens, the sheriff's spokesman, said at the time.
The officer smelled marijuana and found some inside the car, Stevens said.
He was also arrested on marijuana charges in North Carolina in 2013, Louisiana in 2011 and Miami in 2008.
