Southern rapper Gucci Mane was reportedly taken down by police and forced to begin a month-long medical treatment facility after appearing in a courtroom.
Initial details claim Gucci is facing heat from a 2010 arrest.
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 suggest that the court appearance was in relation to a 2005 arrest.
Gucci Mane started off the new year in a court room.

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)
