Gucci Mane Pepper-Sprayed and Arrested in Atlanta
Gucci Mane just can’t seem to stay out of trouble. The rapper was arrested in Atlanta today for a slew of infractions including driving on the wrong side of the road, driving without a license, damage to government property, obstruction, and running a red light or stop sign. According to Atlanta Police Department spokesperson, Curtis Davenport, Gucci, born Radric Davis, had to be pepper sprayed in order for police to arrest him. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, and will later be transported to Fulton County Jail.
This latest arrest only adds to the list of legal issues Gucci can’t seem to stay away from. In May he was released from Fulton County Jail, after serving six months on a parole violation charge. Upon his release he vowed to make a positive change, and focus on his career goals. “I have made some mistakes in my life that have hurt a lot of people who care about me. I have worked very hard to get past them, but those mistakes have brought me to where I am today, and they will not be repeated,” he told reporters in a prepared statement. “These past six months have been a difficult time, but fortunately I have learned a great deal from my experience. I was able to do a great deal of soul searching; I am coming out with a new attitude towards life.”
The 30-year-old was also said to be seeking treatment for cocaine addiction in the Southern Regional Psychiatric Center in Roswell, Ga.
