Gucci Mane is currently being held on a $75,000 bond after allegedly hitting a fan in the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub last month, the Associated Press reports. A judge initially denied Mane bail citing his long history of legal troubles (see: run-ins involving murder, cocaine, reckless driving, and more), in addition to this latest aggravated assault charge.

Drew Findling, the attorney representing Gucci Mane (born Radric Davis), said that the Alabama-born rapper plans to post bond in Georgia’s Fulton County. Following that, Davis will be transferred to DeKalb County, where he reportedly has a hold placed on him because of his probation stemming from an unrelated misdemeanor charge.

The nightclub incident reportedly occurred on March 16, when the victim, a soldier named James Lettley, tried to take a picture with the MC. According to RapFix, Lettley approached a security guard and asked if Gucci Mane would pose for a photo; instead, the fan claims, he received 10 stitches after the alleged assault.

SPIN labeled Gucci as his own worst enemy more than two years ago, and it’s no less true today.
