Rapper Gucci Mane Arrested
The Daily Swarm states that this misdemeanor charge happened in January at Atlanta, Georgia, where Gucci had invited a woman at the mall to come and have breakfast with him. In the car though, while they were on their way to breakfast, he offered her $150 to go with him to a hotel room. After she had refused and asked to be returned back to the mall, he opened his car door, while it was still in motion, and pushed her out. Boom. Just like that. Obviously he doesn’t take a woman’s rejection well.
Gucci Mane, real name Radric Davis, is well known for his rap albums Murder Was the Case (2009), Hood Classics (2008), Back to the Traphouse (2007), Trap-A-Thon (2007), Hard To Kill (2006), and Trap House (2005).
In 2001 he had a previous run-in with the law after being caught with cocaine possession and arrested. At the Gucci Mane fan site, Gucci Mane Music, it gives details about his past incidents with the law. In 2005 he was involved in a shooting when men tried to attack him for his trademark, “So Icey” chain. The rapper’s group “out of self-defense” shot the assaulters and an arrest warrant was issued for Gucci a few days later. The rapper had turned himself in but months later police reported that the evidence for the murder charge was not enough for a case against him.
His next arrest was for marijuana possession and owning “an unlicensed gun.” Again, there wasn’t enough evidence to stick him so they dropped the charges. In July 2008, he was found by traffic police in possession of marijuana and was forced to face the drug charges. In September, on that same year, he violated his probation and ended up in jail for a year. In 2009 he was released, but then violated his probation a second time later in November of that year.
Back to 2011…Gucci was confined in custody after dealing with Friday’s battery charge and the rapper will be charged for violating his probation – AGAIN. This will be his third time.
Gucci has reportedly faced a judge and is being held on a $5,000 bond. There is no word on additional details.
