Gucci Mane Heading Back to Jail?
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
When rapper Gucci Mane isn’t taking shots at other Atlanta rappers such as T.I., Young Jeezy and now his own former associate Wake Flocka; he’s dealing with a lot of legal problems. Things for the rapper aren’t looking too good right now considering his request for community service following his recent attack of a fan (and US soldier) with a bottle has been denied. If you haven’t been following the story, Gucci got into an altercation earlier this year in an Atlanta nightclub with one of his own fans. According to reports, the fan claims he only asked for a picture with Gucci before he was hit in the head with a champagne bottle by the rapper himself. Unfortunately for the fan, it was also his birthday and he was hoping he could get the picture while partying with close friends.
Following the attack, Gucci Mane was then charged with aggravated assault with a weapon but later pleaded not guilty to the charge. On his hearing that took place on Monday, a judge denied his request to do community service following the arrest over the assault.
It’s very possible Gucci is heading back to jail for the assault, especially since he’s had lots of legal troubles continuously throughout his rap career. In the meantime, he’s actively beefing with his own artist Waka Flocka and taking multiple shots at rappers T.I. and Young Jeezy in his music and Twitter account. Neither Jeezy, nor T.I. have responded to the recent jabs. However, Waka Flocka has been clapping back on Twitter.
As of now, no trial date has been set. But FOX 5 Atlanta is reporting it could be set in November or December of this year.
