After yesterday reports claiming Gucci Mane was bailed from jail for an assault case hit the Internet, new details reveal the Southern rapper was merely transferred to a new location.
The rapper's attorney has come forward to provide an update on his client's status.
Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane has entered a not guilty plea in a Georgia court and has been transferred to another jail to face charges of violating his probation. Gucci, aka Radric Davis, had been in jail in Dekalb County for 12 days until being bailed out Wednesday; and as RumorFix first reported he was then transferred to Fulton County to face previous charges. Gucci's attorney Ashutosh Joshi tells RumorFix exclusively, "We were aware that he would not be released, we just wanted to get him to Fulton County to move forward on his probation violation."

Yesterday, reports claimed his family posted bail for Gucci.
RumorFix has learned exclusively that rapper Gucci Mane has been bailed out of Dekalb County Jail almost two weeks after he was arrested for allegedly throwing a woman out of a car. Sources tell RumorFix that although the bail was only $5,700 friends and family were sick of Gucci's troubles so no one wanted to come to his rescue. (RumorFix)
Gucci's lawyer also said his client planned to plead not guilty.
Rapper Gucci Mane's lawyer is denying accusations that the musician pushed a woman out of his Hummer as he drove down a suburban Atlanta street in January. Attorney Ashutosh Joshi said Tuesday the artist intends to plead not guilty. DeKalb County prosecutors on Tuesday announced formal charges of battery, reckless conduct and disorderly conduct against the rapper, also known as Radric Delantic Davis, 31. DeKalb Solicitor-General Sherry Boston said the rapper's conduct "shows a wilful disregard for a woman's personal safety." Joshi said he and his client look forward to having the opportunity to fight the charges in court. (Canadian Press)
