Gucci Mane Enters Not Guilty Plea In Assault Case

The burden of proof is officially on the state of Georgia now, after Gucci Mane entered a plea of not guilty to an aggravated assault charge in a Fulton County courtroom Monday (May 13).

As for the accusations that the Brick Squad general hit an Afghanistan veteran over the noggin with a champagne bottle in an Atlanta nightclub after the soldier asked for a photograph with the “Wasted” MC back in March , the rapper born Radric Davis said that he’s innocent.

“He’s out on bond, just going about his life,” Gucci’s lawyer Drew Findling told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Gucci, who recently added Chief Keef to his Brick Squad roster, was indicted on the charges last month and arrested four days later. He served almost three weeks in jail alongside partner-in-rhyme Young Scooter before posting a $75,000 bond on May 2. At the time, Findling argued that there was no existing evidence against his client other than the victim’s account.

Luckily for Gucci, who has faced numerous legal battles since making a name for himself in hip-hop, including a murder charge back in 2005 that was eventually dropped, the legal system provides for equal treatment under the law. Let’s just hope the The State vs. Radric Davis spitter steers clear of any additional trouble before he has his day in court.
