Atlanta (WAOK/WSBTV) — East Atlanta rapper Gucci Mane is in trouble again. The much-maligned rapper – real name Radric Davis – was indicted November 19 by a federal grand jury and is now facing two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon.
The latest indictment tops a years-long rap sheet.
In September 2013, Davis, 33, was found to be in possession of a handgun after police were called to his attorneys office due to his erratic behavior. No charges were filed in that incident. Two days later, police were called again in response to his behavior and he was found walking down a street, possessing a handgun and small bag of marijuana. He was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
Davis was convicted of two felonies in 2005. In June 2005 Davis was convicted for possessing over 20 grams of marijuana in Florida and in October of that year, he was accused of hitting a promoter in the head with a pool stick. He plead no contest to charges of aggravated assault and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon for that incident. In 2006 Davis was acquitted for his role in a 2005 murder, citing self-defense.
