According to TMZ, he was taken into custody on Saturday night/early Sunday morning after one of his friends waved down police and told them about his erratic behavior. When the cops approached Gucci, he started threatening them and cursing them out.
We’re told he was immediately taken into custody and police found a small amount of marijuana on the 33-year old rapper … as well as a handgun. GM was booked for carrying a concealed weapon, disorderly conduct and marijuana possession … then taken to a nearby hospital as a precaution. We’re told he’s still at the hospital.
Meanwhile, the man that almost fought Gucci at Lenox last week, stopped by V103′s “The Big Tigger Show” to talk about what really went down. He said he was an aspiring singer, who didn’t have anything to do with Nicki Minaj or Twitter, but their beef stemmed from Gucci grabbing on his wife’s butt a while back while he was locked up. When he first approached Gucci in the mall, he was trying to sell him a CD, but Gucci was feeling froggy, so he jumped.
I want everybody in Atlanta to know that what y’all saw in that video, that’s not my character. I really don’t get out of my zone like that, but I do want the world to know that Gucci is a very, very disrespectful brother. I want you to know that this goes back to a couple of years.
This goes back to when my wife was working for the DA and Gucci grabbed my wife’s behind. I was locked up at the time. We bumped into each other about a year ago when he had his goons with him and he tried to show out with his goons. I saw him at the Lenox Mall yesterday as I’m selling my CDs, and I walked up to Gucci with the CD in his face and the first thing he said when he recognized who I was, he said, ‘Make a move. Throw your hands.’ I said, ‘I ain’t here to fight. I ain’t trying to fight.’ He said, ‘I don’t do pictures,’ I said, ‘I ain’t ask you for no picture, cuz.’ He said, ‘I ain’t no homosexual, I like women.’ I said, ‘Hold on Gucci, you ain’t go to disrespect me.’ He said, ‘Well, move your hands then.’ I’m from Detroit, Michigan. When somebody tells you to make a move, you make a move. Gucci didn’t want to do nothing. He ran behind my wife. Y’all see in the video that he’s in his little boxing stance, but y’all gotta see the whole thing when I really told Gucci how I really felt about him.
By the way, that lady that had that baby that broke that up, I want everybody to know that that’s my wife and that’s my son. My wife knew what I was getting ready to do to Gucci and she wanted to prevent that.
