Rapper Gucci Mane ArrestedBy: Mike Fossum - September 15, 2013
Rapper/actor/tattoo enthusiast Gucci Mane was arrested for disorderly conduct, possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon Saturday, according to Atlanta police. The incident took place on an Atlanta street, early in the morning, after a friend of the rapper flagged down police due to Mane’s odd behavior.
Mane, 33, whose legal name is Radric Davis, became “increasingly agitated,” according to police, spewing insults and threats at the officers. He was taken into custody, when police found a handgun and a bit of marijuana in his possession.
Mane, who recently appeared in Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers,” can be seen with rapper Future in his video for “Fu*k Da World,” below:
Incidentally, actor James Franco’s character in Spring Breakers is said to be based on the greatest rapper who’s ever lived, Riff Raff.

Gucci Mane was also arrested in Atlanta in March, after clubbing a fan over the head with a champagne bottle, and faced charges for violating a number of traffic laws in the city in 2010. Mane was also charged in the shooting death of a man in 2005, but the case was dropped due to insufficient evidence.
