The difference? Ross, whos real name is William Roberts, currently has no bail set...where Diddy paid 50k and was free. Plus there's the fact that Ross' victim is now eating through a straw because he was beaten so badly.
Rick Ross took a Glock 9MM pistol and then viciously pistol-whipped one of his workers so badly, he messed up his jaw and neck ... so claim the cops who arrested him.
Ross got into an argument with his groundskeeper at the massive Georgia home he bought from Evander Holyfield, this according to legal docs. According to law enforcement, Ross forced the groundskeeper into the guesthouse bedroom at gunpoint and started grilling him.
Ross has been charged with kidnapping, aggravated battery and aggravated assault, the Fayette County Sheriff's Office said in a news release. His bodyguard Nadrian James, 42, faces kidnapping and aggravated battery charges.
The alleged incident took place back on June 7th but the two men were just arrested for it this morning, June 24, 2015.
Ross' is set to stay in jail with no bail until his next court hearing, which is July 1st.
