Atlanta police have issued an aggravated assault warrant for the arrest of hip-hop star Gucci Mane (pictured), stemming from an incident involving a soldier, according to WSBTV.

On March 16th, Mane, whose actual name is Radric Davis, was reportedly partying in the VIP area of an Atlanta club, when a soldier, who has only been identified as James, reportedly spotted the rapper. James allegedly approached a security guard who was in the corded off area and asked, “I’m in the military. I wanted to get a picture with Gucci Mane, is it OK?”

According to James, after he asked the security guard his question, Mane allegedly smashed a champagne bottle over his head.

James, who is in the army and was recently deployed to Afghanistan, was reportedly celebrating his birthday at the club with friends and told police it was his first trip to Atlanta. He also said he was stunned by Mane’s alleged violent reaction to his request, telling WSBTV, “And as I looked at him [Mane] in the shock of why, one of his friends hit me in the side of my face.”

A Kentucky resident, James says he sustained a concussion and received lacerations to the head from the blow, which required 10 stitches. James also says that since the incident, he has continued to suffer from bad headaches.

Meanwhile, the 33-year-old rapper, who was at the club promoting his new mixtape, reportedly fled the scene after the incident involving James.

Unfortunately, Mane has run afoul of the law since 2001 and has a lengthy rap sheet that involves violence, drugs, and traffic offenses.  In 2011, Mane was arrested for alleged reckless driving; the charges were soon dropped, but he nonetheless faced possible revocation of his probation from a previous crime.

At the time, the rapper’s lawyers filed a Special Plea of Mental Incompetency, arguing that he was unable “to go forward and/or intelligently participate in the probation revocation hearing.”  Mane was ordered by a judge to be committed to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation and was released a few weeks later.  No information was publicly given on why he was allowed to leave the facility or what it meant for his probation status.
