ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say rapper Gucci Mane has been arrested in a greater Atlanta suburb and charged with battery.
Jail records show Mane, real name Radric Delantic Davis, was booked Friday into the DeKalb County Jail. A police report says a woman waiting for a mall store to open early Jan. 28 was approached by Mane in a Hummer, who invited her to breakfast. Police say Mane then told the woman he wanted to go to a hotel and would give her $150, but she refused. Police say the rapper began shoving the woman and she was forced from the moving vehicle.
Lawyer Michael Holmes, who represented Davis in the past, could not immediately be reached for comment.
Gucci Mane has produced street anthems including “Wasted” and “Go Head,” featuring Man Bre-Z.
