Gucci Mane Arrested On Probation Violation

Troubled rapper [article id="1651378"]Gucci Mane is in custody[/article] 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 [article id="1651487"]charges against the "Lemonade" lyricist[/article] 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 [article id="1638925"]rapper was released from prison[/article] 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.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Gucci Mane's protégé [article id="1655228"]Waka Flocka Flame[/article] is also in custody, on drug and weapons charges.
