Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane is reportedly still behind bars after a judge denied his bond request earlier today (March 27) after he turned himself in to Georgia authorities last night.
Despite being denied, Mane’s attorney is confident his client will be cleared of the charges.
Rapper Gucci Mane was jailed in Georgia on Wednesday for allegedly hitting a fan in the head with a champagne bottle at an Atlanta nightclub earlier this month. A magistrate judge denied bond for Mane at his first court appearance on Wednesday, sheriff’s spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said. Mane did not enter a plea. His next hearing will be on April 10, Flanagan said. Mane’s attorney, Drew Findling, told Reuters he would appeal the denial of bond to a higher court. He said six witnesses interviewed by his office about what he described as a melee at the club did not pin blame on the rapper. “None of them said Gucci had anything to do with it,” Findling said.

“Haha RT @WakaSosaBRM: @WakaFlockaBSM go bail hucci out, he prolly sick rite na lmfaooo,” he tweeted March 27th. (Waka Flocka Flame’s Twitter)
Details of Mane’s arrest hit the Internet Wednesday morning.
Rapper Gucci Mane was being held in jail on an assault charge after a fan told police the artist smashed a champagne bottle on his head in a downtown Atlanta nightclub.

A warrant for his arrest was reportedly issued last week after the Southern rapper allegedly assaulted a man.
Atlanta police have issued an arrest warrant for a well-known rapper after a soldier said he was assaulted by him. The soldier told Channel 2’s Amy Napier Viteri he was just looking to get a picture with Gucci Mane when the rapper attacked him. Photos show cuts to the soldier’s head after he said Radric Davis, whose stage name is Gucci Mane, hit him with a champagne bottle last Friday night. The soldier, who asked only to be called by his first name, James, told Viteri he asked a security guard in the VIP section of Harlem Nights on Courtland Street in Atlanta, if he could get a photo with the rapper.
