Published Nov 02, 2010Like T.I. before him, Atlanta, GA-based rapper Gucci Mane has been arrested for traffic violations mere months after serving a year-long prison sentence.
According to AllHipHop, Gucci was arrested for numerous traffic infractions in Atlanta that include driving on the wrong side of the road, running a red light or stop sign, damage to government property, obstruction, no licence, no proof of insurance and other traffic charges. Mane allegedly resisted arrest and was pepper sprayed.
The rapper was then taken to the city's Grady Memorial Hospital for a medical checkup. From there, he is expected to be transferred to Fulton County Jail. That's the same prison he was released from in May after a sentence for violating parole. Records suggest Mane has served time at Fulton at least five times since 2005.
Gucci Mane recently released his third proper album, The Appeal: Georgia's Most Wanted. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
UPDATE: Well, looks as if Gucci dodged a bullet on this one. The charges have been dropped.
