Gucci Mane Wanted for Assault

Gucci Mane attends the BET Hip Hop Awards 2010 at Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center on October 2, 2010 in Atlanta, Georgia.

Unfortunately, it seems that the recent feel-good story of Gucci Mane falling asleep during his big Spring Breakers sex scene will be overshadowed by  more typical Gucci news: Cops in Georgia have issued an arrest warrant for the rapper, who has been accused of attacking a fan at an Atlanta club. To make matters worse, the alleged  victim, 32-year-old James Leonard Lettley, is a soldier who recently returned from Afghanistan. In an interview with a local news channel, Lettley (who was out celebrating his birthday when the incident occurred) said that he approached a security guard in the club's VIP section and said, "I'm in the military. I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane, is it okay?" According to the police report, Gucci responded to the request by hitting Lettley in the head with a champagne bottle, "causing a severe laceration" that required ten stitches at a nearby hospital. Gucci then fled the scene, though a police spokesman said that he's "sure he'll want to reach out and contact us" now that he knows he's wanted for aggravated assault.
