Gucci Mane Surrenders to Police Over Assault Charge
Rapper has been booked into country jail in Atlanta
Gucci Mane faces a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon. He’s reportedly accused of hitting a soldier in the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta club. A Fulton Country sheriff’s spokesperson told the AJC the rapper was set for a hearing today with a magistrate.
According to Atlanta’s Channel 2 Action News, the alleged victim has said he just wanted to have his photo taken with Gucci Mane but ended the night with a concussion and stitches. Another person reportedly said Gucci Mane hit him in the face at a Philadelphia club a couple of nights after the alleged Atlanta incident.
Gucci Mane appears in the recently released movie Spring Breakers, and our hip-hop blogger Brandon Soderberg evaluated his performance.
