Southern rapper Gucci Mane is reportedly still locked up in an Atlanta jail despite yesterday reports which claimed he had all charges against him dropped.
According to reports, no bail has been set for one of his multiple charges.
Contrary to reports alleging Gucci Mane was set free today (Nov. 3) following a court appearance, a rep for the Fulton County Jail Office in Atlanta has told The Juice that Gucci, born Radric Davis, is still behind bars. The reason? No bail has been set for the damage to government property charge, one of seven charges Gucci's been hit with. The other six are: Obstruction of law enforcement ($1000 bail) Driving without a license ($100) Reckless driving ($1000) Failure to obey traffic control ($200) Failure to maintain lane ($100) Driving on wrong side of the road ($100) (Billboard)
Yesterday, it was reported that all charges against him were dropped.
Charges against rapper Gucci Mane were dropped Wednesday, following an arrest Tuesday in Atlanta, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The rapper had been charged with obstruction of officers, interference with government property, reckless driving and other counts. Gucci Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, was held overnight and then released, according to the paper, after charges were dropped "for want of prosecution. (CBS News)
A rundown of what allegedly took place had also been revealed.
Mane, real name Radric Davis, was behind the wheel of his white Hummer around 11:30 a.m. driving "at a high rate of speed," per an off-duty cop. The officer quickly dispatched on-duty officers, who tracked the SUV to a nearby auto body shop, where Mane was involved in a heated argument. When cops attempted to break it up, Mane allegedly struck the other man, whose name was not released. Mane refused to submit to police, according to the incident report, and wound up on the receiving end of some pepper spray. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital to be checked out before he was checked in to Fulton County Jail. (E! Online)
In November 2009, Gucci Mane was sent to jail for violating his probation before eventually getting released last May.
Mane has been sent back to Fulton County Jail in Atlanta for probation violation. Sources close to the Atlanta rapper say Gucci attended a court hearing earlier today to determine whether or not he'd have to serve time for an unspecified infraction that violated the conditions of his probation. He was sentenced to 12 months, but could end up serving only six with good behavior. This doesn't mark the first time Gucci violates his probation. The rapper was sent to the same jail for only completing 25 out of a required 600 hours of community service in relation to a prior assault charge. (BET)
