Troubled rapper Gucci Mane is in custody once again, this time on a probation violation stemming from an arrest in early November.
The Atlanta-based star (real name Radric Davis) was arrested on November 2 when police discovered him driving on the wrong side of the road. Police needed to use pepper spray to subdue the rapper but he was later released. The traffic charges against the “Lemonade” lyricist were eventually dropped.
On Monday, the rapper appeared in court for a probation hearing related to the incident. Records from the Fulton County Superior Court Clerk’s office obtained by MTV News reveal Gucci Mane filed a “special plea of mental incompetency” on December 27 indicating he is unable to “intelligently participate” in the revocation process.
Gucci Mane is set to stand before a judge again on January 24. At that time, a sentence will be recommended — expected to be 17 months — for violating his post-prison supervision terms. The rapper was released from prison last May after a previous violation.
In the meantime, the rapper has been admitted to Anchor Hospital where he will undergo a “competency hearing” to determine his mental state.
