Pump ya brakes if you thought Z-RO was getting off scot-free. The Houston rapper has been charged with misdemeanor assault by the D.A. for his alleged beating of then-girlfriend Just Brittany despite a Grand Jury deciding not to press charges. 

Reports TMZ:

TMZ has learned the Harris County D.A. marched into court Wednesday and charged the rapper with assault on a family member, a Class A misdemeanor. We’re told Z-RO was in court for the hearing.

What a difference a day makes. TMZ broke the story … Z-RO dodged felony charges Tuesday when the grand jury declined to hand up an indictment. It appears the D.A. went with plan B, and slapped him with the misdemeanor.

As we first reported, Z-RO allegedly attacked his then-gf, Just Brittany, for hours in his home. She recorded audio of the alleged incident and handed it over to cops.

The grand jury reportedly passed on charges due to inconsistencies in Just Brittany’s story.

Z-RO faces up to a year in jail if he is convicted.
