ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia 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.
Fulton County Jail records show that Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, was in custody early Wednesday on a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon.
An arrest warrant was issued for Mane after James Lettley of Fort Hood, Texas, who is a member of the military, told police the rapper struck him at Harlem Nights Club on March 16. Lettley said he was hoping to get a picture with the rapper when he was attacked.
It was unclear if Mane has an attorney. Fulton County authorities say he faces a first appearance at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
