According to reports, one of Gucci's pals had police come after him early Saturday due to his erratic behavior.
Gucci Mane was arrested this morning for allegedly cussing out a couple of cops in Atlanta while in possession of weed and a gun ... TMZ has learned. Gucci Mane -- real name Radric Davis -- was taken into custody at 12:05 am this morning after one of his friends complained to cops about his erratic behavior. According to the report -- the friend waved down police to help out ... but when they approached Gucci he began "cursing and threatening them." We're told he was immediately taken into custody and police found a small amount of marijuana on the 33-year old rapper ... as well as a handgun. (TMZ)
Following the arrest, local authorities took Gucci to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Upon being taken into custody, police reportedly found a small amount of marijuana on Gucci, as well as a handgun. Gucci was booked for carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct, and marijuana possession, TMZ reports. Gucci Mane's behavior must have been legitimately alarming, because after running him through the system, Atlanta PD then reportedly took him to a hospital as a precaution. (Hollywood Life)
Over the past few months, the Atlanta rapper has made headlines for multiple crime-related incidents.
It's the latest arrest for the troubled artist, who was indicted in April on an assault charge after he was accused of hitting a soldier in the head with a champagne bottle at Harlem Nights club in downtown Atlanta. He pleaded not guilty. In 2005, Davis was charged with murder in DeKalb County after shooting a Macon rapper he said attacked him. The charges were later dropped. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Recently, producer Drumma Boy discussed the various mood swings Mane sometimes goes through when they're together.
"It depends on how he feels. Sometimes Gucci is pissed the f*ck off and there's no telling what's on his mind. I'm not going to irritate him and ask, "What happened dog?" His dudes will ask him if he wants a blunt or he's hungry, and we'll just get him in a vibe where we can say, "You wanna hear some beats?" and he says, "Yeah play something!" Now he's in his zone and I can get him to record. As a producer that's one thing. That's why I feel like I'm so underrated, because I'm a therapist. I'm not just a producer, I do so much more just to cater to this motherf*cker for him to even be in the mind set to record a hit." (Complex)
