Rapper Gucci Mane was denied bond Wednesday at his first court appearance after his arrest for allegedly assaulting a soldier earlier this month at an Atlanta nightclub. His next court date is April 10.
Update: A second victim comes forward
The musician, whose real name is Radric Davis, was booked into the Fulton County Jail Tuesday, charged with aggravated assault with a weapon, according to online jail records.
Fulton County sheriff’s spokeswoman Tracy Flanagan said Davis turned himself in at the jail about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday, and will face a magistrate for a first appearance at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
Channel 2 Action News reported last week that Atlanta police had issued a warrant for the rapper following the March 16 incident at the Harlem Nights club on Courtland Street.
The alleged victim told Channel 2 that Davis hit him in the head with a champagne bottle after he asked to take a photo with the rapper.
“I’m in the military. I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane, is it okay?” the soldier said he asked a security guard.
“I was speaking to the security guard, and Gucci Mane hit me in the head with a bottle,” the solder told Channel 2.
The soldier told the station that he went to Grady Memorial Hospital by ambulance, and his injury required 10 stitches.
