High-speed chase ends on Fayette County estate of hip-hop superstar Rick Ross

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A chase ended in one man’s arrest at a well-known hip hop artist’s Fayette County home, according to the Clayton County Sheriff’s Office.

Authorities say 911 received a call from a 13-year-old about a man trying to enter a home while armed with a handgun.

Deputies spotted the suspect, who attempted to drive off, leading them on a high-speed chase. The chase ended near the intersection of Old National Hwy. and Hwy. 138 near the home of rapper Rick Ross.

The suspect reportedly jumped out of the vehicle armed and started running.

Deputies saw the suspect run through the wood line and make it onto the property of Ross.

Estate security allowed deputies onto the property where the suspect was detained minutes later. Deputies are still searching for the weapon the suspect had when he went onto the property.


It may take deputies a while to search the property that sits on more than 100 acres. The home was famously once owned by boxer Evander Holyfield. The 45,000 square foot home that sits on the property has been the backdrop of many TV and film productions. Most recently, this home was used as the palace in the Coming to America sequel.

Ross happened not to be home today when all of the action took place on his property.
