This announcement comes a day after Gucci was indicted on felony charges.
Rapper Gucci Mane was charged in federal court Tuesday with two counts of possessing a firearm as a felon after two September incidents during which he showed a gun and threatened police, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Georgia. Reports at the time indicated that the "Lemonade" rhymer was arrested in Atlanta on September 14 after a friend flagged down police to say he was concerned about the rapper's behavior. (CNN)
Mane found himself in handcuffs after a couple of September incidents.
Early Sept. 14, a man who said he was a friend of the rapper's called police to say Davis was walking down the street behaving violently, according to a police report. When police arrived, Davis smelled strongly of marijuana, cursed at them, called them names and threatened to shoot them, the report says. Police arrested him on a disorderly conduct charge and found a clear baggie with what they believe was marijuana and a loaded .40-caliber Glock handgun, the report says. An ambulance was called, and Davis was sedated and taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment. (ABC News)
Last weekend, reports hit the Internet about Gucci having to turn his weapons over to the government.
Gucci Mane's got a problem with the United States government that goes beyond taxes -- it's like a bullet to the heart ... because Uncle Sam wants to take his Glock. According to a federal indictment, the government wants Mane to surrender his 2 guns -- a 40 caliber Glock and a 45 caliber Taurus. They also want the ammo that goes with it. As for why the government has a hard-on for Mane ... the rapper has 2 priors -- aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of more than 20 grams of pot. The priors trigger a forfeiture. Trigger ... get it. (TMZ)
