Troubled rapper Gucci Mane was arrested in Atlanta, Georgia in the early hours of Saturday (14Sep13). The hip-hop star, real name Radric Davis, was detained by cops on suspicion of disorderly conduct, possession of marijuana and carrying a concealed weapon. The arrest reportedly occurred after one of Gucci Mane's associates called police and voiced concerns about the star's behaviour. The police report, obtained by Ajc.com, states the rapper became "increasingly agitated with officers and began cursing and threatening them". Officers allegedly found the 33-year-old star to be in possession of a handgun and a small amount of marijuana. He was arrested and taken to a local hospital for a check-up as a precaution. The arrest comes just days after Gucci Mane hit headlines for lashing out at Nicki Minaj in a bizarre rant on Twitter.com, prompting the Starships hitmaker to implore him to seek help. Gucci Mane has been dogged by legal troubles for years - he walked free from his most recent jail stint in May (13) following an arrest for an alleged probation violation. He is also due to stand trial later this year (13) after pleading not guilty to allegations he hit a soldier over the head with a bottle in an Atlanta nightclub in March (13).
