Gucci Mane

Gucci Mane was arrested Saturday morning after allegedly threatening Atlanta police while in possession of marijuana and a gun, TMZ reports.

The rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, was taken into custody at 12:05 a.m. after his behavior became so erratic that his friend enlisted police help. When law enforcement approached Mane, he began “cursing and threatening them.”

Mane, 33, was then taken into custody where police found a small amount of weed and a handgun in his possession. He was booked for carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct and marijuana possession before being taken to the hospital as a precaution, where he still allegedly remains.

This is only the latest scandal for Mane, who is best known for songs such as “Making Love to the Money” and “Break Up.” Just this week, the rapper went on a Twitter rant, insulting many prominent rappers. He was also reportedly dropped from his label and got into an altercation with a man at a mall. In addition to rapping, Mane is also an actor and appeared most recently in Spring Breakers.
