A suspect who crashed into Rick Ross’ Atlanta area mansion during a high-speed police chase has died in custody.
40-year-old Chaka Stewart led police on a wild chase that ended at the rapper’s front door in Fayetteville, Georgia last week.
Stewart was found unresponsive in his jail cell at the Clayton County Jail on Saturday.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation tells TMZ, a guard and a medic who were making the evening rounds noticed Stewart unresponsive in his cell. They attempted Cardiopulmonary resuscitation but were unsuccessful.
Stewart was pronounced dead at the jail. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Stewart was alone in his cell and no foul play is suspected. An autopsy is underway to determine his cause of death.
Stewart’s mother, Jacqueline Gordon, confirmed her son is the suspect who crashed outside Rick’s 190 room mansion last week. Police say he crashed his truck and was carrying a firearm. He surrendered at gunpoint and was taken into custody.
Gordon says she last spoke to her son Friday. She claims he told her he was being beaten behind bars. It is unclear if he was accusing jail officials or other inmates. He also told her he wasn’t allowed to shower and was confined to his cell for 23 hours a day.
Gordon also claims one of the deputies told Stewart he’d never get out of jail. She said Georgia authorities have been ducking her and her inquiries.
Rick bought the mansion at a discount after former boxer Evander Holyfield was foreclosed on in 2014. Holyfield is pictured strolling on the grounds of the custom built home during a Fourth of July celebration in 2002.
