Rick Ross – Man Who Led Police On High-Speed Chase At Rapper’s Estate Found Dead In Jail Cell
Update #2 (May 19th): A disturbing development has been made concerning the man who led police on a high-speed chase at Rick Ross’s Atlanta home earlier this month.
The alleged suspect, Chaka Stewart, has been found dead in his jail cell, according to CBS46.
The incident occurred after a 13-year-old called police to report the suspect trying to break into their home. A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office said the perp had a handgun. Stewart allegedly left the property before police got to the scene. Still, deputies spotted his pickup truck and tried to conduct a traffic stop. That’s when Stewart took them on a high-speed chase throughout the area. It ended at Rick Ross’s estate. Stewart then hopped out of his car, gun in hand, and tried to flee. He went through a wood panel and ultimately made his way to the rapper’s property. Rick Ross’s security granted deputies access to look for Stewart (Rick Ross wasn’t home at the time). While they found him, they weren’t able to find the gun.
Days later, Stewart was found dead in his jail cell as deputies completed their evening rounds. He was said to be alone. The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office asked the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) to look into the jail. The GBI Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy.
Original Story (May 12th): Yesterday (Tuesday, May 11th), Clayton County Sherriff’s deputies paid a visit to Rick Ross‘ Georgia mega-mansion–but it’s not what you think!
It turns out that police were in pursuit of a suspect in an attempted break-in, and their chase wound up spilling onto Rick Ross‘ estate. As reported by TMZ, the suspect crashed during a high-speed chase near Old National Highway and Georgia Highway 138, and he chose to continue evading on foot. Officers also allege that the suspect was armed with a gun.
A short while later, the fleeing suspect made his way into a wooded area that was actually on Rick Ross‘ property. The rapper’s security guards allowed the officers through the security gate to continue their pursuit. Ultimately, deputies located the suspect and took him into custody at gunpoint. They later returned to the scene to search for the suspect’s alleged weapon. No one was injured in the pursuit or arrest, and the suspect is now in custody at Clayton County Jail.
Whether Rick Ross was home during this time is unknown.
This criminal pursuit isn’t the only reason Rick Ross‘ Atlanta estate has made headlines in recent years, though! During a 2019 interview, Rick Ross mentioned that his property would be used to film Coming 2 America.
“I’m the real King of Zamunda! I’ll be honest, y’all go back and listen to some of my much earlier interviews and you’ll hear me say that’s one of my favorite, if not my favorite film of all time. They reached out and they’re filming at my estate in Atlanta. It’s really gonna be giraffes and elephants and all that.”
