The son of “Ravishing” Rick Rude has been arrested and the allegations are serious.
According to multiple reports from news outlets in Rome, GA, 28-year-old Richard Ryan Roode was arrested last month and faces felony charged including “terroristic threats and possession of firearms during the commission of a crime” after a traffic stop.
Police say Rood initially refused to stop for city police and when he did stop, it was determined that he was driving under the influence and they found two champagne bottles in his vehicle. Police also found two firearms and learned that he had made threats to cause bodily harm to a 45-year old woman.
Roode is charged with two felony counts of possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, obstruction of officers, a violation for having an open container, simple assault, and disorderly conduct. The most serious charge appears to be a felony for making terroristic threats.
