The rapper allegedly threatened police and was behaving erratically.
Gucci Mane was arrested in Atlanta early Saturday (Sept. 14) after he threatened police, TMZ reports. Authorities found a small amount of weed and a gun on the 33-year-old, born Radric Davis.
According to the police report, Gucci started "cursing and threatening" officers after they approached him at about 12:30 a.m. A friend of the troubled rap star reportedly flagged them down because the rapper was acting erratic.
Police arrested Gooch for marijuana possession, carrying a concealed weapon and disorderly conduct. Instead of jail, Gooch was taken to nearby Grady Memorial Hospital as a precaution, and remains at the facility.
This arrest caps off what was a wild drama-filled week for the Brick Squad founder. On Monday (Sept. 9) he went off on an epic Twitter rant where he alleged to have had sex with Nicki Minaj among other scandalous confessions. He also insulted T.I., Waka Flocka Flame, Rick Ross, Jeezy, Tyga among others. Although a person claiming to be his brother said Gucci's Twitter account was hacked, the "Wasted" rapper later blamed the Twitter blowup on former manager Coach K.
Following the social-media outburst, Gucci nearly got into a fistfight with a man inside Atlanta's Lenox Mall. Grainy video of the near altercation popped up on the Internet on Wednesday (Sept. 11)
Gucci Mane is currently on trial for reportedly assaulting a U.S. solider in April.
