Friday, Apr 8, 2011 1:45PM
Southern rapper Gucci Mane has reportedly been arrested this afternoon following a meeting with his probation officer.
While details are still emerging, reports claim Gucci received multiple criminal charges.
DeKalb County Police say Radric Davis, also known as Gucci Mane, was arrested by the DeKalb County Fugitive Squad Friday. Davis was arrested while visiting his probation officer at the Georgia Department of Corrections Probation Office on Sylvan Road in Atlanta, say authorities. Davis is charged with battery, a misdemeanor but as a result of the arrest will be also charged with violating his probation. Davis is on probation for previous unrelated charges. Police say they arrested Davis on a warrant that stated he intentionally caused visible bodily harm to a female by pushing her out of a moving vehicle. Davis is being held in the DeKalb County Jail.

Last January, Gucci made headlines for allegedly being arrested in Atlanta.
Gucci Mane is in hot water again. Several hours ago, the Atlanta MC faced a Fulton County Superior Court judge who ordered the rapper be thrown back into prison for a probation violation. Gucci, born Radric Davis, faces a possible 17-month prison sentence if convicted of the violation, which stems from an arrest last year. The rapper's attorney requested the judge give him an ankle monitor rather than throw him behind bars. However, Gucci's probation officer insisted he be placed in custody. The judge agreed with the request. (The Boom Box)
Additional reporting suggested the court appearance was in relation to a 2005 arrest.
Gucci Mane started off the new year in a court room. XXLMag.com has learned that the Brick Squad rapper had a probation hearing earlier today (January 3), stemming from a 2005 case, and a judge had ordered him to a medical treatment facility for the next 30 days until his next court appearance. "The court ordered Mr. Davis into treatment of a medical treatment facility, pending a revocation hearing later this month." Gooch's lawyer, Michael Holmes told XXL. When asked why he was sent to the center, Holmes said that information was "confidential." During the hearing a probation officer said Gucci will likely be sentenced to a 17 months of jail time.
