Gucci Mane Goes to Jail
ATLANTA (AP) Gucci Mane, a little-known rap singer before getting into trouble with the law, pleaded no contest Wednesday to hitting a promoter in the head with a pool cue.
Fulton County Superior Court Judge John J. Goger sentenced Davis to six months in jail, followed by 6-1/2 years of probation. Mane, whose real name is Radric Davis, will receive credit for three months already served in jail.
The 25-year-old admitted to charges of aggravated assault and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon when he attacked Troy Bufford June 14 at Big Cat Records in Atlanta, where Bufford had gone to pick up a CD.
Bufford and Davis argued and the owner told the two to leave. Bufford said that when he left Davis hit him in the head with the pool cue, cutting his head, and then several other men beat him, prosecutor Andrew Schwartz said.
Davis also agreed to pay hospital and medical bills of about $3,000.
Schwartz said the state wanted him to plead guilty, but Goger accepted a plea of nolo contendre on the condition Davis allow the record of Wednesday's proceedings to be used in any civil suit that Bufford might bring.
"You have a great future in music, but you seem to get in trouble,'' Goger told Davis, who also faces a murder charge in suburban DeKalb County.
Davis has been accused in the May 10 shooting death of Henry Clark, whose body was found three days later in the woods near an Atlanta middle school. Davis claimed he acted in self-defense, and the case was put on hold until this month, pending a new investigation.
Mane released his debut album, ``Trap House,'' in May. On the day of the album's release, the 25-year-old rapper posted a $100,000 bond " the murder case.
