Gucci In The VIP

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.
