ATLANTA -- He's in the news again. Radric Davis, who is more famously known as Gucci Mane, is not only in the news again...he's in jail again. This time he's charged with battery, a misdemeanor, but as a result of the arrest, he is also charged with violating his probation on previous charges.
The rap star was taken into custody by DeKalb County Sheriff Deputies while he was visiting his probation officer at the Georgia Department of Corrections Probation Office on Sylvan Road in Atlanta. Gucci Mane was transported to the DeKalb County jail where was booked in and will wait for a probation hearing.
The incident he is charged with happened on January 28th, according to an incident report from DeKalb County police. According to the report, Gucci Mane picked up a 36 year old woman at South DeKalb Mall in a white Hummer after he asked her if she wanted to go to breakfast.
The alleged victim stated she had never met the suspect previously but knew of his musical profession according to the report. At one point the woman realized he wasn't taking her for breakfast. "(The woman) asked what was he doing and where were they going. Gucci Mane stated that he wanted to go to the hotel and that he would give her $150 dollars. (The woman) refused and stated just take me back to the mall, I can make my own money."
The report said Gucci Mane leaned over the woman and opened the passenger side door while the vehicle was still in motion. "Gucci Mane shoved (the woman) several times in the side and shoulder area attempting to get her out of his vehicle." The report said the vehicle left the roadway and Gucci Mane was able to push (the woman) out of the vehicle which was still moving.
According to the report, the woman was transported to Atlanta Medical Center complaining of soreness and pain. The woman was advised to apply for a warrant. "Detectives did not take out a warrant," said DeKalb Police spokesperson Mekka Parish. "In misdemeanor assault/battery cases the victim applies for warrants."
The arrest Friday is the result of an April 1, 2011 Magistrate Court Hearing of the woman's complaint.
Gucci Mane is no stranger to police in metro Atlanta. This arrest follows at least five other arrests in Fulton County alone since 2005.
