The arrests started from what happened about two weeks ago when Ross and/or his bodyguard allegedly pistol whipped a man who was working on the 109 room mansion that used to belong to Evander Holyfield. Following the assault, the man was not immediately allowed to leave the premises, hence the kidnapping charge.
