Young Money's new recruit, Gucci Mane, was arrested in Atlanta on assault
charges after he allegedly hit a photo-seeking soldier in the head with a
champagne bottle at a nightclub. Later he turned himself in and was booked at the Fulton County Jail Tuesday. He was expected
to go before a judge yesterday morning. It’s unclear whether he has entered a
plea or not but you will be hearing more in media about this situation. Gucci, 33, who plays a gang kingpin in the new movie “Spring
Breakers,” was in the VIP area at the Harlem Nights club in Atlanta
March 16 when a soldier approached the area to have a photo taken, according to WSBTV.
“I’m in the military. I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane, is
it OK?” the soldier told WSBTV he had asked a security guard. Gucci then struck him in the head “with a champagne bottle,
causing a severe laceration to the top of his head,” according to a copy
of the incident report obtained by ABC News. The boys said Gucci Mane left before they arrived and was possibly traveling in a white Chevy Tahoe. The soldier, whom The Associated Press identified as James Lettley,
said he was surprised that Gucci reacted so violently to a simple
request. After Gucci allegedly attacked him, Lettley was taken to a local hospital where he received 10 stitches, WSBTV reported.
According to police records, Mane was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon.
