Gucci Mane won't be doing community service as a punishment for an assault charge. A Fulton County Court judge denied the 33-year-old's request for community service stemming from a violent run-in with a fan, reports Myfoxatlanta.com.

Gucci birth name Radric Davis already pleaded not guilty to assault for the March attack of U.S. soldier James Lettley in the VIP section of Atlanta's Harlem Nights Club. Lettley was hit with a Champagne bottle after he asked to take a picture with Gucci. "I was speaking to the security guard, and Gucci Mane hit me in the head with a bottle," the war veteran claimed. 

After a warrant was issued for his arrest, the Bricksquad rapper turned himself in only to face a second set of allegations of a fan scuffle, this time in Philadelphia.

As for his current case, Gucci's lawyer says no trial date has been set yet but believes proceedings will start in either November or December.
