ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say a police officer used pepper spray on rapper Gucci Mane after he resisted arrest during a traffic stop.
Atlanta police spokesman Curtis Davenport said the rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, was arrested Tuesday after an off-duty officer stopped his white Hummer near Atlanta’s downtown area.
Davenport said officers saw the rapper arguing with another person. He said they had to use pepper spray after Davis assaulted that person, whose identity wasn’t released.
Authorities say Davis was arrested and charged with obstruction of officers, interference with government property, reckless driving and other counts.
In May, the rapper was released from an Atlanta jail after serving six months for violating probation on an assault charge.
